On Saturday, April 17, 2021 from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm HLAA-TC will be having our monthly chapter meeting on Zoom. For a meeting link, before the meeting, email firstname.lastname@example.org (The following is information on the April speaker(s) that was published in the April 2021 HLAA-TC newsletter.)
Katherine Teece, AuD, University of Minnesota, Listen Lab
“Impact of social distancing on persons with sensory loss during COVID-19 pandemic”
Kate completed her Au.D. training at the University of Minnesota. She spent the next 10 years as a clinical audiologist primarily at the Mayo Clinic, fitting hearing aids and cochlear implants for adults. In 2018 she returned to the University and joined the Listen Lab.
Kate coordinates lab activities and conducts some of her own research related to listening effort and audiologic rehabilitation. The COVID-19 pandemic has also opened up new directions with online research.
Katherine works at the Listen Lab at the University of Minnesota alongside Dr. Matthew Winn, AuD (the HLAA-TC monthly speaker for our January 2021 Zoom chapter meeting) .
We will also be joined by Jason Leyendecker, AuD: “Access to quality hearing healthcare is a huge concern with our aging population. Medicare has deemed audiology services and hearing aids an elective procedure.
We are looking forward to picking your brain as to what the consumer really wants for hearing health benefits.”
