Ida in the Media

Our goal is to foster a better understanding of the human dynamics associated with hearing loss. We aim to transform the field of hearing health care so that professionals and their patients can holistically address the challenges of living with hearing loss using patient-centered care principles.

One way in which we work to generate this transformation is by reaching hearing care professionals through journals and other publications. Below are links to Ida’s coverage in the media and on the internet.
