PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE | I Hope You Hear “Of Course!”

I hope 2020 is full of people responding to you with “of course.” The world needs more people saying “…of course.” Whether it is “of course you are welcome here” or “of course I’ll help.” Even “yes” isn’t as good as “of course.” “Yes” means it could have been “no”—“of course” means there was never any question.

The Birth of Our Professional Home

As our Academy reached its 30th birthday in 2018 and our 30th annual conference just this past March (2019), it may be instructive to the younger members to recount the events leading to the founding of our professional home. It all began at the 1987 convention of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) in New Orleans. Before this event, the professional home of all audiologists in the United States was ASHA.

Our Responsibility to Move Audiology Forward

A culture of quality is needed if we are to bring audiology into the spotlight and highlight our expertise in hearing and balance. Ritz-Carlton co-founder and former president Horst Schulze states that we can create transactions every day, but until we place the person next to us as the most important person in the world in that moment, we will never create an experience.

KNOW HOW | Changing Times Will Revitalize Audiology Services

Audiology services and provisions are changing following the passage of the over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aid legislation. In the end, what that will actually mean is still unclear. Likely, we will see a device that can manage mild hearing loss for patients and give them some options for their hearing health care. Those of us who have practiced for many years are still trying to decide how that will fit into our current practice model and whether to incorporate an OTC product in the clinic.
