My crystal ball isn’t any better than yours. Well, that was a blatant exaggeration. I don’t even have a crystal ball. However, I do have what many readers may not yet have … a 40-year experience in audiology. Believe it or not I first starting providing audiology services 1974 at Baylor College of Medicine and Methodist Hospital in Houston Texas, one year after earning my Masters degree at Northwestern University. You can read all about these exciting career developments elsewhere on this website.
In June 2014 I gave a series of lectures in Australia. My first stop was the lovely city of Brisbane on the east coast where I led a 4-day workshop sponsored by Salus University as part of their International Bridge Program. This was followed by a pleasant day with Wayne Wilson and colleagues at the University of Queensland. I then flew west across the vast expanse of the continent to exciting Perth Australia where I was a guest speaker at the impressive Ear Science Institute of Australia (ESIA). I was invited to be the Keynote speaker on the topic of the “Future of Audiology” at an annual scientific symposium sponsored by the ESIA. I used the accompanying PPT presentation in giving this lecture. I’m now prepared to take this thought-provoking presentation on the road in the USA and elsewhere in the world.
