Advocate in your state
On September 28, 2016 the three Audiology Organizations (ASHA, AAA and ADA) met to discuss the need for clinical guidelines and educational materials and resources for audiological management of chronic disease, starting with diabetes. The audiology organizations heard presentations from Centers for Disease Control, American Association of Diabetes Educators, Pharmacy, Optometry and expert Audiologists who explained the pathophysiological impact of diabetes on hearing and balance
Now the work begins to create the framework of best practices and standards of audiological management for patients with diabetes and health professionals who help them navigate healthy lifestyles.
This work needs help from audiologists and other professionals in every state. Join The Audiology Project as a volunteer or an Audiologist TAP Cohort to help raise awareness in the medical and allied healthcare professions!
