Hearing technology and hearing loss treatments continue to evolve such that even “old pro” consumers with hearing loss often have questions that are hard to pin down. Dr. Ingrao has spent his career being accessible to consumers, students and professionals.  In this open Q&A, he will take questions from participants and a variety of hearing-related topics including, but not limited to hearing loss, hearing testing, hearing technology (hearing aids, hearing assistive technology, and implantable hearing systems), tinnitus and balance.
