Alice Cellino, Au.D., 2016-17 GAA President
Hello everyone! I’m excited to see you in a few weeks at the GAA Convention. I always feel invigorated after convention; getting my CEUs and seeing audiology friends keeps it interesting. This is also my favorite time to network and catch-up with audiology news around the state. For example, did you know that the FDA no longer requires medical clearance or a medical waiver for adults prior to the purchase of hearing aids? Or, are you aware that the Georgia Political Action committee has been busy meeting with Georgia congress men and women on your behalf, promoting audiology and protecting our field? I look forward to passing on all of the year’s updates at the GA Tech Learning Center onFebruary 2-3, 2017. Get ready for another fun social night on February 2nd, too. See you then!
