“I am so grateful for the opportunities the CaptionCall scholarship will give me in strengthening my abilities in evoked potential research, which measures how sound is processed in the nervous system from the ear to the brain,” notes Danielle Bubniak, a third-year, AuD/PhD dual-degree doctoral student at Syracuse University. “I am passionate about the pediatric population and this scholarship will help support my current projects pertaining to central auditory maturation during adolescence and future work studying the auditory outcomes of concussion.”
CaptionCall Vice President of Marketing Paul Kershisnik said CaptionCall strives to be a hearing health advocate to preserve social connectivity and independence for people experiencing hearing loss.
