National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research (NCRAR)
Craig Formby, Ph.D.
Dr. Formby is a Distinguished Graduate Research Professor at the Department of Communicative Disorders, University of Alabama. He will discuss the implications of comorbid auditory conditions (e.g., hearing loss, hyperacusis) for planning and selecting tinnitus management options. He will also explain the scientific rationale for a variety of sound-based tinnitus therapies including devices that target tinnitus alone, devices that target both hearing loss and tinnitus, and approaches that combine sound and psychological interventions. Conference attendees will learn the science that underlies sound-based tinnitus management, and clinical considerations for selecting sound-based tinnitus therapy to meet the needs of individual tinnitus patients.
Financial/Nonfinancial Relationships: Dr. Formby has a financial relationship with NIH/NIDCD and General Hearing Instruments, Inc. as a grant recipient and independent contractor.
