Your Foundation Working Is to Increase Your Visibility
Eighty-two percent of Internet users looking for help with their health condition will start their searches with a search engine such as Google (Castillo, 2013). The Academy Board has set the wheels in motion to create an innovative, accessible new Find an Audiologist directory as part of an overhaul to the Academy website.
To accompany this new directory design, the American Academy of Audiology, with financial support from the AAA Foundation, is on a public awareness mission to make sure that Internet searches will lead the public to us—the specialists most qualified to evaluate, manage, and diagnose hearing loss and balance problems.
Our goal is for patients to not only find “audiology” but specifically to find you.
Demonstrate your financial commitment to your AAA Foundation and this exciting new initiative. Together, we can create the change we want to see in our profession.
Independently, each of our contributions can have limited impact, but together the influence can be substantial. We ask that you consider giving like never before and think of a donation amount you would be proud to announce. Thank you for your support!
