EUHA to Host 62nd Annual Training for Hearing Aid Acousticians

The European Union of Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA) (http://www.euha.org) will provide further education and advanced vocational training to hearing aid acousticians at its 62nd International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians between Oct. 18 and Oct. 20. This gathering of audiologists and acousticians in Nuremberg, Germany, will feature almost 20 lectures and tutorials on the latest in audiology research, science, hearing aid acoustics, and technology, such as over-the-counter hearing aids and their impact, innovations in directional hearing connectivity, and tinnitus and hyperacusis. A major focus of this year's event will be on smart hearing, which EUHA refers to as technological features that compensate for hearing deficiencies as best as possible, like Bluetooth and wireless connectivity. EUHA said smart hearing allows people with impaired hearing to stay tuned and take part in social interactions that rely on modern communication devices, and hearing aid acousticians play a crucial role in ensuring that people with hearing loss have the most best fit and can use these new technologies efficiently.

Tickets to the event are now available on EUHA's online store (http://www.euha.org/congress/ticketshop-en/) and will be on sale on the day of the event.
