All audiologists and consumers are welcome to join this event.
Keynote Speaker: Shilo Harris served in the military and during his deployment to war-torn Iraq, on February 19, 2007, Harris’ armored vehicle was struck by an improvised explosive device (IED). The explosion injured the driver and ended the lives of three of his fellow soldiers. Shilo survived but with severe third-degree burns. The severity of the burns meant the loss of Shilo’s ears resulting in severe hearing loss. Shilo has since become a motivational speaker, sharing his story with groups around the country, raising awareness about the effects of hearing loss.

The app, hearScreen USA, was created in collaboration with hearXGroup of South Africa, and is the first U.S. mobile comprehensive hearing screening application. The hearXGroup is a technology start-up that aims to provide affordable access to hearing care using connected solutions that are available to everyone, from any location.
The hearScreen USA app can accurately deliver a hearing screening over a smart phone. The app will then direct those who show hearing loss to audiologists in their area. The app is free for consumers, while audiologists subscribe to the service.
“Many people don’t realize that they’re suffering with hearing loss, and others cannot take time from their busy schedules to find an audiologist. hearScreen USA will make hearing screens and the ease of connecting to licensed audiologists readily available to everyone,” American Academy of Audiology president Jackie Clark, PhD, said.
The Academy is offering this free listing in the app or a discounted subscription for an upgraded listing as a member benefit. Take advantage of this unique public awareness opportunity to get your practice out there to consumers in need of quality hearing care.
