2022 HLAA Research Symposium

Cochlear Implants: What’s new? What’s next?

The first cochlear implants (CIs) were introduced in the 1970s, but the technology remains relatively poorly understood and underused in the hearing loss community.  This year’s Research Symposium will address the knowledge gap around CIs, explore who is a is a potential candidate for implantation, what’s involved in treatment, and how CI technology has changed and will change further in the future.  A mix of clinical information and science, this session is a “must attend” for anyone with hearing loss.

The 2022 Research Symposium is supported, in part, by a grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, National Institutes of Health (Award Number R13DC017913).
