Beyond the Audiology Clinic: Innovations and Possibilities of Connected Health
September 18th - 20th 2013
Portland, Oregon

This year’s NCRAR conference will address telaudiology – a topic that is rapidly increasing in importance and relevance to clinicians and scientists alike.

The meeting will take place over 3 days in Portland, Oregon. In addition to presentations from invited speakers, there will be a poster session for which you can submit an abstract, and an interactive technology exhibit at which the latest innovations in teleaudiology will be demonstrated. The program will also include plenty of time for Q&A and discussion.

As ever, registration will be kept to a minimum (Early registration: $120 for VA employees and students, $180 for all others), and we will be offering scholarships for students and clinicians.

Check back in late April for submission of posters, online registration and scholarship application forms.
