Dr Urban says that ADA has always been an organization that has taken the lead in envisioning where the profession should be moving, such as in the establishment of the AuD as the preferred designator for clinical audiologists. In a panel discussion moderated by Dan Quall, the need for greater awareness about the influence of hearing loss and what needs to be done to create more public awareness of its implications was discussed by Barbara Weinstein, Frank Lin, Larry Humes, and David Citron. Urban says the fruits of that labor are already evident in the endorsements of several organizations, including several state audiology organizations, the Scott Haug Foundation, Salus University, and the David & Carol Myers Foundation.
Gregory Frazer, PhD, AuD, received the Academy’s Leo Doerfler Award for excellence in clinical practice. Tim Steele, PhD, received the ADA Advocacy Award for his instrumental work in introducing the Audiology Patient Choice Act of 2014. Special recognition to ADA Executive Director Stephanie Czuhajewski, CAE, who works tirelessly on behalf of the organization. The Leo Doerfler Award, which honors excellence in clinical practice, was presented to Gregory Frazer, PhD, AuD, of Pacific Specialists Hearing and Balance Center in Los Angeles.
The ADA Advocacy Award was presented to Tim Steele, PhD, of Associated Audiologists in Overland Park, Kan, for his instrumental work in helping introduce the Audiology Patient Choice Act of 2014. The ADA Student Advocacy Award went to Rachel Magann Faivre of Northern Illinois University. Beyond the blockbuster sale of Siemens Hearing Instruments which was announced on the first day of the event, discussions at this year’s ADA Convention were dominated by the information from an selection of general sessions and seminars, as well as a busy exhibit hall that featured over 60 companies, associations, organizations, and universities. The educational program also offered 20 seminars that ranged in subjects from the new challenges faced by dispensing practices to tinnitus management.


At the General Session and President’s Address, ADA President Brian Urban, AuD, mixed his humorous and personal perspectives with important information about the Academy’s activities during 2014. Notably, it was announced just prior to the convention that the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) has endorsed 18×18.
Goldstein Outstanding Audiologist Award was presented in memory of the late George Osborne, PhD, the first dean of PCO School of Audiology (Salus University), and was accepted by Victor Bray, PhD. This convention has always been known as an ideal place to network with like-minded dispensing professionals, and there were ample opportunities to do so at the Opening Night Reception in the exhibit hall, as well as at Friday night’s “Cherry on the Top Party” by the pool.
The 2015 Annual Convention will be held on November 12-15, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Likewise, several practice-building seminars titled “Taking Care of Business” were conducted by Sam Rotella, Kevin St Clergy, MS, Steve Woodward, and Brandan Ford. Additionally, The Hearing Review hosted a 1-hour presentation, “10 Winning Tips for Patient Loyalty,” brought to attendees by CareCredit, which featured long-time industry marketing expert Sergei Kochkin, PhD, and Michele Ahlman of Clear Digital Media and Alex Aubert of Solutionreach.
Additionally, a panel discussion on the evaluation and management of vestibular disorders was moderated by Sam Bittel, AuD.
As the great American philosopher Eric Hoffer put it, ‘In times of change learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists’ —and I can tell you that ADA is full of learners.
