PUBLIC RELATIONS | Using Influencers to Market Goods and Services

Just as your friends and neighbors have input into some of the goods and services you buy, influencers can be just as meaningful—especially if they have authentic experiences to share. This is also the reason that review sites are so popular, as the public flocks to them to get opinions on what to buy, where to travel, where to eat, what physicians and audiologists to see, which home service companies to hire, and which companies to avoid. Social media reviews can make or break a business and, once they turn negative, it takes significant time to effectively turn them around.

AUDIOLOGY ADVOCATE | Building the Future for Audiology

A new Congress offers hope. The American Academy of Audiology (the Academy), the Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA), and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) opted to seize the moment to move forward together to seek a legislative strategy for the 116th Congress. Rather than individually pursuing legislative initiatives for the profession, the three organizations committed to working together to draft a single Medicare bill to advance the recommendations of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) report.
