By Hanna Sawher This article is a part of the September/October 2018, Volume 30, Number 5, Audiology Today issue. The third annual National Day at Your State Capital Day (NDAYSCD) brought audiology doctoral students together from across the country to advocate for the profession of audiology and for the patients they serve. NDAYSCD takes place each spring to encourage and support students to be advocates in their states and to improve their professional skills of decision making, leadership, self-motivation, and the ability to work under pressure. Another goal of NDAYSCD is to increase public awareness of audiology and to increase the awareness of our elected officials on important audiology issues, specifically at the state level.
