Dr. Juliette Sterkens, Au.D., has been traveling around New Mexico and Arizona in hopes of educating other #audiologists, hearing aid consumers and a wide range of community members, on the importance of #looping systems and telecoils. Her presentation “Pathway to an Accessible Community for People with #HearingLoss Through Hearing Loop Technology" has been a great hit here in Arizona. Thanks Dr. Sterkens for taking the time to come out and visit Arizona! We hope to have you back soon!
