“As a global leader in hearing healthcare, we are grateful for this opportunity to connect with people with hearing loss to not only help them discover new technology that may improve their lives, but to learn from them about the challenges they face every day,” said Starkey President and CEO Brandon Sawalich. “As we all know, the world is changing before our eyes. From virtual work meetings to routine smartphone updates, the ways in which we communicate are evolving at a quick and steady pace. We are committed to adapting our hearing aids to those changes, so patients with hearing loss don’t risk being disconnected from their world.”
“At Starkey, we strongly believe hearing loss is best treated through the knowledge and experience of hearing healthcare providers,” said Chief Audiology Officer Sara Burdak, AuD. “We are committed to supporting those professionals, so they can, in turn, offer best-in-class care to their patients and families. We appreciate the great work HLAA continues to do, to serve this community as a whole.”
