Audiologists possess amazing knowledge and skills that can change someone’s life, but we have had a difficult time spreading the word. The work we do day in and day out can truly enhance the quality of life of the individuals we serve. But, the messaging to the general public has been limited and ineffective, thereby reducing the number of people who seek our care.
There is a lack of public awareness of the audiology profession. We can all contribute to reverse the narrative of public “unawareness” and tell a better story about the benefits of hearing and balance wellness.
