SAA SPOTLIGHT | Red Bird Mission: An Opportunity for Humanitarian Audiology

One of the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) Development Committee’s goals is to promote humanitarian work among our chapters. We believe these kinds of experiences allow students to develop a broader perspective in audiology by acquiring important skills to practice empathy and compassion as a fundamental part of interaction with a patient. Consequently, this committee is working on creating opportunities to develop these kinds of skills.
