“Ask Me About Audiology” Campaign
In celebration of October being National Audiology Awareness Month, the SAA Education Committee challenges all SAA Chapters to advocate for audiology by participating in the sixth annual “Ask Me About Audiology” Campaign. The goal of the campaign is to bring audiology awareness down to the local level and encourage consumers to ask questions about audiology and hearing related issues.
We are all capable of being advocates for our profession. The SAA Public Outreach Committee has developed resources to help students and professionals alike become advocates, learn about policy, and educate patients and the public about audiology.
National Day At Your State Capitol (NDAYSC)
Every year, state legislators convene in their corresponding state’s capital to participate in the process of lawmaking known as legislative sessions. During this time, members of the public are welcomed and encouraged to reserve space within their state’s capitol to converse with their state legislators about those issues that they are most passionate about and/or directly affect their quality of life, whether on a person, professional, or global level. This is where YOU come in! The SAA Public Outreach Committee is challenging you to take advocacy to the next level in your own states and allow your voices to be heard where it matters most.
