Age-related hearing and balance decline is a public health topic and addresses an area of auditory science that significantly impacts the clinical care of aging adults.

Possible consequences of acquired hearing and balance dysfunction are significant in the aging population. Further focus in this heterogeneous group is needed for improved outcomes, particularly given the increased evidence of association between hearing loss and cognitive decline. Additionally, vestibular loss is a concern for aging individuals as it increases the risk of falls.

ARC 2022 will assist clinicians in building a strong knowledge base and will facilitate an extended research network to promote cutting-edge care for aging adults. The program will feature distinguished panels of speakers to deliver current clinical research on general topics in the morning session and more advanced topics for the afternoon session.
