Congratulations to this year's Julie S. Kelly Scholarship Recipient Breanna Hart from Ohio University!

Hi, my name is Breanna Hart, I am a third year integrated AuD/PhD graduate student at Ohio University. This year, I have the honor of being selected as the 2019 recipient of the Julie S. Kelly Memorial Audiology Scholarship. I am truly grateful to have been awarded this honor. I believe this scholarship will directly benefit my audiology career in two different ways, through professional development and continued research. I plan to use the funds from this scholarship to attend conferences as well as support my research studies. As an integrated AuD/PhD student, I have been able to experience both the clinical and research worlds in the hearing science domain and from that I have noticed a visible gap. I want to merge these two worlds and bring them closer together to help benefit all who encounter audiological services. Through attending conferences, I plan to partake in numerous talks and workshops in order to learn new methods, techniques, and ideas in the field. By attending these conferences, I will meet other professionals in our field and forge new relationships with said people. This will not only boost collaboration but will also benefit the hearing science community as a whole. I believe that attending conferences help promote academic excellence and bettering of one’s understanding of the new topics in the field. The second part of this funding will go towards my research where I am working on testing and development of a machine learning algorithm in the detection of Frequency Following Responses (FFR). I hope to one day develop and train a strong enough machine learning algorithm based off of normative data collected from various populations to be implemented as a diagnostic tool for auditory assessment in clinical applications. I believe that through this scholarship I will have enough funds to help recruit participants and gather the necessary data to continue this project. I feel blessed and honored to have been chosen as the recipient of this award and I want to thank all the people who have helped me along the way in my career as well as the reviewing committee for selecting me.

Thank you so much,

Breanna Hart
