LAFAYETTE, Ind—The Audiology Foundation of America (AFA), in conjunction with ReSound, is now accepting applications for “ReSound University for AuD Students.” This special educational program for AuD students and faculty will be held May 14-17, 2008, at ReSound’s headquarters in Bloomington, Minn. Second- and third-year residential AuD students, as well as clinical faculty members from AuD programs, may apply. Attendees will learn about audiology issues and technology, hearing aid market trends, real software applications, career and professional issues, manufacturing, and counseling best practices.
