After attending the SHAV conference and the different sessions that were offered, I expanded not only my knowledge in speech-language pathology (SLP), but also in audiology. I learned more in depth about over-the-counter hearing aids and the implications it has on our community. It was really interesting to hear about audiology from actual audiologists’ perspectives, and not just SLPs. Since I am the Graduate Assistant for audiology, I feel this will broaden my knowledge when assisting our audiologist with patients since I have not only a more broad knowledge of this field, but also because of the details I learned from this conference. I hope to be able to advocate for my field of speech by informing future clients and/or professionals I collaborate with the importance we have on audiology.
