Early Hearing Detection and Intervention: Doing the Right Thing in Primary Care Practice
September 29, 2015, 6 – 7pm Central Time
The American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) program is hosting a webinar focusing on the improving care for children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Hearing loss is one of the most common congenital conditions and, if not identified early, can potentially result in significant developmental delays. Rachel St John, MD, FAAP, will highlight the role the medical home in coordinating care within the EHDI program. Dr St John will also offer strategies to improve timely and appropriate care for children who may be Deaf or Hard of Hearing.
Additional information and registration for the webinar is available here.

Researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology are using an National Science Foundation grant valued at nearly $500,000 to study the challenges of how STEM students from diverse backgrounds—specifically hearing, deaf and hard-of-hearing students—effectively communicate with each other and understand common subject material.
People with a common form of hearing loss not helped by hearing aids achieved significant and sometimes profound improvements in their hearing and understanding of speech with hybrid cochlear implant devices, according to a new multicenter study led by specialists at NYU Langone Medical Center.
Abstract submission will close on Monday, September 28th, 2015.
Fairbanks’ Equinox Marathon is widely regarded as one of the most difficult marathons in the nation. Runners endure an 1,800-foot ascent up Ester Dome, racing through wooded trails laced with tree roots and ruts and over gravel roads before braving a steep descent — sometimes in the snow.
Think that’s hard enough? Now imagine running it blind.
Brian Switzer will do exactly that on Saturday, when he runs the trail’s 26.2 miles in support of the Usher Syndrome Coalition’s campaign to “Own the Equinox” and raise awareness of the condition.

It’s not just baby talk. Any kind of talk with young children — especially if they’re too young to talk back — will do.
Because talk is vital to a child’s brain development, says Dana Suskind, who found her passion for literacy in an unlikely place: the operating room.
