WHO Fact Sheet on Pediatric Hearing Loss

In honor of March 3 World Hearing Day, the World Health Organization has released a fact sheet about pediatric hearing loss, its implications, and how it can be addressed. This communication piece is a part of a larger effort (that transcends pediatrics to include all forms of hearing loss) to raise the visibility of hearing health globally. The end goal is that every country has hearing health resources and governmental policies to support those affected.

View the fact sheet here and please share: http://www.who.int/pbd/deafness/world-hearing-day/2016/en/

Volunteer Audiologist Needed – Nicaragua

Location: Leon, Nicaragua

I am planning a trip to Leon November 21 through December 2 (this will be during Thanksgiving week). As a result, I have not been able to find an audiologist to accompany us. Part of our group will only be staying through Nov 28. If you know of any audiologist that might be interested, I would really appreciate it if you would forward my e-mail to them. Thanks.
