An Online Conference

history is important, new genetic testing
technologies are improving and becoming more
accessible making them a key aspect of the diagnostic process.
In this online conference, led by
Kathleen Arnos, PhD, director of the genetics
program at Gallaudet University, you'll get the latest info
on these technologies while learning about
advances in the field of genetics and how
they impact your clients.
Get the skills to:
- Describe how genetic factors influence hearing
loss in infants and school-age children
- Describe the recent scientific progress in complex
- Explain hearing loss to patients and
- Determine appropriate referrals for
diagnosis and management
