The 9th biennial Ohio Audiology Conference

The Ohio Academy of Audiology recognizes that our members need support to navigate the many changes facing audiology and we're committed to offering the resources necessary for you to be successful.  Mark your calendars now! The 9th Biennial Ohio Audiology Conference (OAC) is coming early to help you thrive in a changing climate.  AAA2019 is coming to Columbus in March 2019 when we would normally hold an OAC.  So, in the spirit of embracing change, we are not only adapting to this disruption, we are making it our theme!

This year's OAC, Unconventional Audiology: Discovering Opportunity, is happening at a new time (October 26-27, 2018), in a new location (Northeast Ohio) with a new format (single, cohesive track).  This will be an UNconvention: unconventional approaches to familiar problems, identifying opportunities for professional growth in a changing environment, and thinking outside the (test) box.  You can't afford to miss this meeting!  

Change is inevitable, but this year's OAC will prepare you to think creatively and unconventionally and offer you strategies to implement immediately in your practice.  Plus. we will be offering 0.2 hours of ethics - right in time to fulfill your ethics requirement at the end of the licensing year.     

Stay tuned for further updates!!!!!

NOAC Goes to Guatemala!

The Ohio Academy of Audiology (OAA) recently sponsored two of its board members to partake in a mission trip to Zaccapa, Guatemala. The two board members, Dr. Erin Miller and Dr. Stacy Weisend, accompanied Au.D students from the Northeast Ohio Au.D Consortium (NOAC). The group collaborated with Hearts In Motion (H.I.M) to provide hearing healthcare to several different communities surrounding Zaccapa. The mission of Hearts In Motion is to provide care and medical treatment for children, families, and communities through its programs and sponsorships in the U.S., and Central and South America. This trip was the first time H.I.M has collaborated with an outside entity to provide hearing healthcare to the citizens of Guatemala. This collaboration was facilitated by the students at NOAC, who are all OAA members, in an effort to help those who would otherwise not be afforded access to hearing healthcare. In addition, the group collected donations for H.IM. and provided much needed supplies, including clothing, diapers, wipes, educational toys and basic hygiene supplies. During their four days of clinic, the group was able to provide services to almost 200 people!
