Audiology 2014: Genetics and Hearing Loss

The early bird rate expires 10/8/14.

As an audiologist, you're usually the first person a parent talks to after a child fails the newborn hearing screening, which puts you in a unique position. And although getting a family history is important, new genetic testing technologies are improving and becoming more accessible making them a key aspect of the diagnostic process.  

In the recorded sessions and live chats in this online conference, Dr. Kathleen Arnos (director of the genetics program at Gallaudet University) and other expert speakers present the latest info on these technologies while discussing advances in the field of genetics and how they impact your clients.
