Dr. Huang is an assistant professor in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Minnesota. She specializes in Otology and Neurotology which as she phrases it is “the study of the ears and the skull base.”
Her talk to HLAA-TC will be about Tinnitus and various theories behind it. Dr. Huang will discuss theories of tinnitus generation in the brain and what patients can potentially do to help manage it. Dr. Huang wants HLAA-TC members “to know that the vast majority of Tinnitus is generated by the brain, not the ears.”
In her talk Dr. Huang will address practical things that a person can do “to help mitigate” Tinnitus symptoms. She mentions various things, such as “easy things include noise masking, particularly at bedtime, with quiet room noise such as a fan or space heater or apps on your phone that generate white noise or ambient sounds.”
Dr. Huang will be available to answer questions from those attending the Zoom meeting. So make sure you register to attend the October HLAA-TC meeting.
