Student Academy of Audiology at the University of Texas
Chelsea Burns: Social Chair
Nicole Sieck: Treasurer
Katherine Reistroffer
Currently it is a graduate student organization because it just started this year but they are currently working on expanding to undergraduate students in the time to come!

Their vision: "Creating a network and increasing awareness" about audiology and the field 

Networking is mostly geared with students in the graduate program and audiologists and professional in audiology in the Austin area to create professional relationships for the future.
Increasing awareness to the public of audiology as a profession, sharing scholarships, events, opportunities and issues in the field with students, as well as increasing awareness about hearing loss and hearing health care in the community.

Currently, they have a t-shirt fundraiser for $12 (check out their fb page) and if you are interested in purchasing one contact utaustinsaa@gmail.com

They have worked on projects such as hearing screenings for the special olympics and the KUDU Wave project where they conduct hearing tests in communities where people otherwise wouldn't receive the services with a portable diagnostic audiometer that doesn't require a sound booth!

Future projects include educating the community about hearing loss and hearing protection such as posters and passing out earplugs for ACL and SXSW.

How can you get involved? 

There are some meetings that undergraduate students can attend, such as the recent audiologist panel. They will send NSSLHA updates :)
They also recommend getting involved in any way you can with research alongside professors, such as through the IE program.

Research in Audiology at UT

Teleaudiology project (TAP) - working with UT Austin graduate students and UTHSC San Antonio nursing students by bringing audiology services to individual who do not have the means to access hearing health care through video conferencing. This is the only teleaudiology project in a university thus far!
Check out http://csd.utexas.edu/research for more info on research
There is an honors program for Audiology so check that out on the CSD website!

Hope you Audiology students enjoyed this information:)

See you at our next meeting for officer elections!

  24. Conference and meeting rooms are a good way to bring all of your employee together for discussing business. Most of these rooms which are available for hire, are fitted with modern technological equipment.

  26. A smallish campaign with a homemade list would not be likely to yield much of a result. To achieve anything worthwhile, a much more aggressive effort is needed. Then, the age-old value analysis applies: projected earnings = margin on total projected sales - cost of campaign.
