Each year at HLAA Conventions we bring in professionals to speak on specific areas of hearing loss 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 (NIDCD), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and sponsored by Cochlear Americas. We will hear from the following researchers:

The Potential for Regenerative Medicine to Restore Hearing Loss

Today, new potential treatments are being developed to provide patients a solution for hearing loss and help improve the clarity of sound by restoring the biology that enables natural hearing function. From regenerative medicines, to gene and cell therapies, emerging categories of potential medicines may introduce new treatment paradigms for physicians and patients while potentially transforming the standard of care. What could this future look like and how could it benefit patients with hearing loss?

WORKPLACE GAIN: A Discussion on Self-Advocacy, Marketing and Navigating the Workplace with Hearing Loss

You’ve secured an interview or a great job with an exciting new team.  Now what?  Are you concerned about when or how to disclose your hearing loss, or what accommodations are available to you?  Are you nervous about fitting in with your team or proving yourself in your role? Join this panel discussion with representatives from two large employers to learn about the employer's perspective on hearing loss in the workplace. Panel members will discuss workplace culture, disclosing hearing loss, accommodations, self-advocacy, and how to successfully navigate the workplace with hearing loss, leaving plenty of time for questions. By the end of the session you will be prepared to turn your hearing loss into a workplace gain.
