Diabetes-Related Hearing and Balance Issues Webinar

Posted in ADA News

Presented by: The Audiology Project
Presenter: Kathy Dowd, AuD
Date: February 27, 2018 @ 12:30-1:30 pm

There is a humanitarian issue for early detection of adult hearing loss in assessing the impact of chronic disease on hearing and balance. Undetected hearing loss causes confusion, isolation and depression, in addition to poor job performance, loss of wages and poor family communication. Undetected balance issues increase the risk of falls and magnify the medical costs and trauma to the patient and to the medical system.

To OTC or Not To OTC? How Audiologists Need to Respond to Over-The-Counter Hearing Aids

Posted in ADA News

By Nancy M. Williams

To OTC or not to OTC, that is the question for audiologists now that the Over-the Counter (OTC) Hearing Aid Act has become law. The introduction of OTC hearing aids into the market has the potential to seismically reshape hearing healthcare. Audiologists need to determine how and when they should adapt their offerings to respond to this event with its double sides of opportunity and challenge. My recommendation: audiologists should conduct market tests now to start formulating their product and service strategies for when the Over-the-Counter (OTC) regulations take effect.
