Research Symposium

The Latest on Tinnitus Research
Friday, June 19

Each year at the HLAA Convention we bring in professionals to speak on specific areas of hearing research. This year’s topic is The Latest on Tinnitus Research. It will feature talks by top scientists and clinicians who will tell us what tinnitus is, what causes it, what is available for treatment and management and how researchers are thinking about treatment and prevention in the future.  The Symposium is supported by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, National Institutes of Health and is sponsored by Cochlear Americas. You will hear from the following researchers:

Lynn W. Henselman, Ph.D., Senior Health Care Consultant/Senior Subject Matter Expert, Pharos Group Incorporated
Colleen G. Le Prell, Ph.D., Professor of Hearing Science, University of Texas at Dallas
Richard S. Tyler, Ph.D., Staff Scientist Phychoacoustician/Audiologist, University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine

HLAA2020 attendees are eligible to apply for a grant up to $200 to help defray the cost of child and family care so they may attend the Research Symposium. Contact Amanda Watson if you are interested in applying.
