Starkey Laboratories Inc, Eden Prairie, Minn, will be the title sponsor this summer of the revitalized 2009 Jackson Hole Rendezvous, a conference focusing on hearing aid technology.
The event, based on a meeting by the same name that was shelved in 2004, will take place at the historic Wort Hotel on June 18 to 20. The agenda will feature keynote speakers, contributed papers, cutting-edge research, and the newest clinical applications and updates on amplification technology and hearing rehabilitation.
“We look forward to resurrecting the tradition of the Rendezvous within the beautiful backdrop of Jackson Hole," says Barry Freeman, director of education and training for Starkey.
The Rendezvous—a mix of high-level educational programs and social gatherings—was held annually for 25 years. The organizing committee consists of Freeman, Michael Marion (who organized the original events), Lucille Beck, Dave Fabry, Jerry Northern, Catherine Palmer, and Dennis Van Vliet.
Registration information will be forthcoming.
