With opening addresses from Academy President Sarah Sydlowski, AuD, PhD, MBA, AAA 2022 Program Chair Wafaa Kaf, PhD, and Academy Executive Director Patrick Gallagher, MBA, the AAA 2022 General Assembly (sponsored by Amplifon) welcomed attendees with videos, presentations, and a performance by the Fabulous Audiology Chorus.
In recognition of outstanding service to the Academy and audiology, President’s Award recipients Catherine Palmer, PhD, and Angela Shoup, PhD, were presented with an honorary plaque to commemorate their leadership both past and present.
Our Keynote Speaker, Paul Smith, best-selling author; business storytelling coach; principal, thoughtLEADERS, LLC; and managing director, story makers, LLC, demonstrated to attendees the importance of storytelling and crafting a narrative. Audiologists are striving to be seen as the essential health-care workers we are, to receive the recognition we deserve, and for people to see hearing loss as something that can be managed and, in some cases, prevented, rather than just a product of aging. We can better serve our patients by strengthening the narrative of the importance of audiological care.
Today and Friday from 3:00–4:45 pm, there will be discussion forums on varying topics. Check out the list below for sessions and room numbers, earn 0.1 CEUs for each. Visit the Online Conference Planner for more!
