We are excited to share the following video clip, recorded at the FTC’s Now Hear This: Competition, Innovation, and Consumer Protection Issues in Hearing Health Care. In the video the executive directors of the Academy of Doctors of Audiology and the Hearing Loss Association of America, Stephanie Czuhajewski and Barbara Kelley (respectively) discuss, the leading independent hearing health resource for consumers with hearing loss.

This one minute segment comes from a panel discussion – Informing Consumer Choice in Hearing Health Care – that lasted almost an hour and 20 minutes, and covered topics such as hearing aid affordability, clinical service + hearing aid price bundling, over-the-counter hearing aids, and much more. We highly recommend watching the whole video over at the FTC’s workshop archive.
