JDVAC is an annual meeting between the Association of VA Audiologists (AVAA) and the Military Audiology Association (MAA). This annual meeting of the two organizations began as part of an effort aimed at expanding and enhancing the cooperation and collaboration between the DOD and VA Audiologists. It provides an opportunity for networking and collaboration between the Audiologists treating our active duty service men and women and those working with our nation’s veterans. The conference aims to offer sessions that are geared toward these particular cohorts and to address the hearing and healthcare issues that are central to what VA and DOD Audiologists deal with on a day to day basis; areas such as tinnitus treatment, TBI/polytrauma, hearing conservation, compensation/pension evaluation.
The Joint Defense Veterans Audiology Association (JDVAA) would like to announce the Joint Defense Veterans Audiology Conference for 2018 – “ATL-Audiology Taking the Lead.” The conference will be held at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, GA on March 26-28, 2018. The committee is looking for anyone who would like to volunteer and be a part of the planning process. If you are interested, please contact Mary Kelly Bone via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is now open. Click here to view the JDVAC agenda.
