The Academy Research Conference (ARC) takes place each year as part of the American Academy of Audiology's annual convention. Leading researchers in the field of hearing health care gather to present their findings on a specified topic.
ARC2019: Advances in Amplification
Hearing aids are the cornerstone in the management of patients with hearing impairment across the lifespan. Properly fit hearing aids improve audibility and, in the context of a (re)habilitation, improve quality of life for individuals living with hearing loss. Extraordinary technical advances have been made in hearing aids over the past decade with many more on the near horizon. Additionally, recent legislative decisions regarding hearing aid distribution and regulatory procedures will impact the hearing health landscape in the coming years. This conference will focus on the latest advances in the selection and fitting of hearing aids as well as evidence-based research as it relates to best practices and improvement in quality of life for all individuals living with hearing loss.
Chaired by Todd Ricketts, PhD, ARC19 brought together in Columbus, OH a world-renowned lineup of leading researchers who presented their latest findings. Recorded in webinar format on March 27, 2019, ARC 2019 will be available in then coming weeks.
ARC2018: Genetics and Hearing Loss Now Available on-demand
Hearing loss is the most common congenital sensory impairment and birth defect. It has been well established that genetics plays an integral role in more than half of congenital hearing losses. Given the strong relationship between genetics and hearing loss in audiological practice, the Academy continues its commitment to providing audiologists the latest on genetics research as it relates to hearing impairment in clinical practice through the annual Academy Research Conference (ARC).
Chaired by Kathleen Arnos, PhD, ARC18 brought together in Nashville, TN a world-renowned lineup of leading researchers who presented their latest findings. Recorded in webinar format on April 18, 2018, ARC 2018 is now available on eAudiology to purchase on-demand.
