Eddie and Ozzie Awards 2016 The Hearing Review is proud to announce that Folio 2016 has selected the magazine as a finalist for the 2016 Eddie & Ozzie Awards.

HR finalist for Eddie Award

The September 2015 issue of The Hearing Review, a finalist for a 2016 Eddie Award.

Hearing Review‘s selection as an award finalist was for its September 2015 issue, which was published in both print and digital format.

Hearing Review Editor in Chief Karl E. Strom worked with Guest Editor and hearing healthcare expert Douglas L. Beck, AuD, who gathered an “expert roundtable” of audiologists and hearing care researchers who contributed short articles, or seven “chapters” in a series, for the issue. These chapters were compiled as a special section devoted to cognition, audition, and amplification.

Douglas L. Beck, AuD

Doug Beck, AuD, served as Guest Editor of HR’s September 2015 issue, and currently serves as Senior Editor of Clinical Research for the magazine.

To produce the issue, Strom and Beck worked alongside Publisher Dana McLain and Associate Editor Christa S. Nuber. Art Director Ashley Miller created the eye-catching design and layout.

The first chapter in the special section was authored by Dr Beck, and titled, “The State of the Art: Hearing Impairment, Cognitive Decline, and Amplification.” Chapter 1: A review of contemporary research…and what it might imply for our future.”
