Audiology at the ASHA Convention
With timely educational sessions for audiologists in all stages of their careers and fun networking events, the
ASHA Convention in Boston is THE place for audiologists and audiology students to be November 15–17, 2018. The ASHA Convention is the largest annual gathering that brings together audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists—where clinicians, faculty, researchers, and students will find an exciting lineup of presentation topics and formats. In addition to best-in-class education sessions, the ASHA Convention provides valuable
career connections and opportunities to meet colleagues from other parts of the country and the world.
While there, visit the Concierge Learning Center in the Convention Center and get help customizing a learning path that is meaningful to your professional interests. Experienced ASHA Audiology staff will help you identify sessions to meet your goals, and even suggest additional courses and resources to investigate after the Convention concludes.
Also be sure to visit the Empowerment Zone, where you can learn about talking with the media; public speaking; and personal branding and storytelling to sharpen your social, political, and personal advocacy skills. Come share what you care about, channel your passion, and find your path to action.
