Audiology students shine at AAA

April 12, 2017

The Iowa Student Academy of Audiology Chapter made CSD proud at the AAA Conference in April.

The group received the SAA Humanitarian, Educational, and Awareness Resources (HEAR) Chapter Grant. The monetary grant will help support the SAA Haunted Hustle for Hearing 5K walk/run.

They were also the overall winner of the SAA Chapter Challenge, beating out 75 other SAA chapters. Their monetary award will be used to support national SAA memberships for active members that participated in these events.

Rebecca Hauser, an undergraduate sophomore in Speech and Hearing Science won the Undergraduate Humanitarian Award, recognizing this future audiologist for demonstrating exemplary participation in SAA chapter events and showing strength in humanitarian and fundraising efforts for audiology.

Kristen Ponturiero and Alyssa Adamec, AuD students, were accepted to attend the Student Leaders in Audiology Conference, an opportunity for future audiologists to grow and develop skills in leadership so that they may become active, contributory members to an already thriving audiology community.

Finally the Iowa SAA chapter received another monetary award to continue supporting WJSHC clients who would otherwise be unable to receive amplification and/or earmolds.
