IMPACT OF HEARING LOSS ON MUSIC ENJOYMENT
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 9
Our presenter will be Isaac Alter, a medical student in the department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery (ear, nose, and throat surgery) at Columbia University. Isaac is also a Bay Area native and a former professional Broadway musician, with a lifelong passion for music and the effects that it can have on people. He will discuss music and hearing, and his work with Dr. Anil Lalwani and Dr. Alex Chern examining the effect of hearing loss on music enjoyment. He will talk about the current state of research and what the group has found in the past, as well as their recruitment of individuals who use hearing aids or cochlear implants to participate in their current study.
WE HOPE TO RETURN TO IN-PERSON MEETINGS SOON!
