Highlights of the Featured Sessions include the very popular and entertaining annual session: Hearing Aids: 2013 in Review. Get there early to grab a seat as this session historically is “standing room only”. If you haven’t attended before, this is the Featured Session where we learn the highlights in hearing aid literature featuring the comical banter between Catherine Palmer, Robert Turner and Gus Mueller.
Have you ever struggled with making recommendations for your adult patients with unilateral hearing loss? If so, consider attending Michael Valente’s session on recently introduced technologies that are restricted to this patient population and hear an update on the AAA Guideline being developed to address providing treatment options for this population.
Are you in need of Tier 1 CEU’s? Consider attending the two part Featured Session on “Genetics” with Lisa Schimmenti, M.D. Another hot topic being covered Saturday morning is Jaime Bogle’s presentation on dizziness and imbalance following mild traumatic brain injury. If Central Auditory Processing is your passion, then you need to take part in the all day CAPD conference from 8am to 5pm.
Get ready for a new addition to AudiologyNOW! – The Great Debate featured session. The topic up for debate: The current model for audiology clinical practice, where hearing aids seem to be the center of our existence is appropriate for the future of the profession. Come listen to the panel as they discuss the pros and cons.
Don't forget to finish your AudiologyNOW! 2014 experience by participating in the 25th anniversary Trivia Bowl. Jerry Northern and Gus Mueller will host this popular event at its new, earlier start time, 12:30pm which includes lunch as well as the traditional hosted bar.
