Opportunities for Shaping the Future of Hearing & Balance Care

September 17, 2022
8 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Hearing health care has been rather stable in terms of how we diagnose, treat and manage patients. However, rapid technological advancements coupled with legislative changes have the potential to disrupt the existing service delivery model. Despite the disruption, there is also an enormous opportunity for us to shape the future of hearing and balance care, improving accessibility, affordability and patient outcomes. This seminar presents thought-provoking and futuristic ideas on how we can play an active role in the evolution of our industry.

The event is jointly organized by the University of Colorado School of Medicine and the University of Colorado Hospital (UCHealth)
