Gain Visibility and Represent the Profession

Situated in the heart of autumn, October is nationally recognized as “Audiology Awareness Month.” As audiologists, this month is more than just a month to post a status on social media or to hang a sign in recognition, but rather to give us a time to be a presence in our local and national communities. To keep with the autumnal theme, use Audiology Awareness Month to think of ways to HARVEST the profession.
