The annual UWSHC Symposium is a fun, educational event for the public about issues related to audiology and hearing. Symposium topics change each year, but the day always includes expert speakers and interactive break-out sessions. This event is a great way for community members to learn more about hot topics and research in the field. All ages are welcome. The UWSHSC symposium has also been very popular community members, UWSHC patients, and UW-Madison undergraduate students. The event is planned and executed by second year Au.D. students as part of a seminar course on reflection, leadership, and mentoring. Previous Symposium topics have included hearing loss prevention, tinnitus, hearing across the ages, and how to improve communication with your loved ones.
