Our membership meeting covered a range of priorities from strategic documents and practice guidelines to the role of outreach and promoting audiology to consumers and allied health professionals, and from advocacy to coding. These discussions very much underscored how all the areas of the Academy are interconnected and working together. We are working FOR you, so the feedback and interaction was most welcome. This is the place for audiology, the voice of audiology, and our strategic goals are aligned with this mission.
We look forward to continued engagement with our members, so even if you didn’t get to attend the conference this year, we still want to hear from you.
This morning’s Clinical Education Forum featured a panel with a range of administrators, preceptors, and students discussing microaggressions in the clinical environment and their personal experiences. Speaker Alaa K. Abdelhakiem Mahmoud, PharmD, presented on how to facilitate better discussions that focus on inclusion.
The term diversity is as vital as it is wide-ranging, and includes race, gender, sexual expression and identity, disability, and linguistics. We are very grateful for our interactive group of panelists and to all attendees who are committed to making the clinical environment a more inclusive place.
Thank you to the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Science Disorders for working in collaboration with the Academic Programs Committee to put together this forum.
We promised not to forget the fun, and we’re so happy you all took advantage of the offered activities inside the expo hall. Our Selfie Station was a popular stop during Celebrate Audiology, and the photos were just too good to keep to ourselves.
