Voices of Hearing and Balance Wellness
Public Awareness Initiative
Experiencing patient success stories is one of the most rewarding parts of working in the health-care field. However, those heart-warming stories often go unnoticed by the general public; especially when it comes to managing hearing and balance wellness.
The American Academy of Audiology Foundation (AAAF) launched a new public awareness initiative to highlight audiologists’ contributions and promote the impact audiologists have on maintaining hearing and balance wellness in Fall 2017. The Foundation collected stories written from the perspective of the patient for publication in a book. By publishing real patient success stories, the Foundation wanted to illustrate the benefits of early identification, treatment, and management of hearing and balance problems with the help of an audiologist.
