PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE | Listening to the Music in Nashville

It seems fitting, as we converge on “Music City” Nashville for our 30th Annual Conference of the American Academy of Audiology, to take time to enjoy the music. After all, “music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything” (Plato). But, music and musicians can also teach us important life lessons. I once read that harmonious and enjoyable bluegrass music requires the stringed instrument musicians (e.g., guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, bass, dulcimer, etc.) to play in specific chords set by the lead instrument.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE | Quit Apologizing and Be Confident

During AAA 2019, the Academy’s annual conference, the focus of the General Assembly was on confidence, the future, and loyalty. Those themes were chosen for the start of the conference, but they really should be the focus for the year, if not forever for audiology.
