Pediatric Audiology Training Resource Site
There are currently 10 Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (LEND) programs that receive supplemental awards to expand and augment their pediatric audiology training efforts. The supplemental funding to the LEND programs was made possible through HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). The contract also funded this LEND Pediatric Audiology Training Resource Site for all LEND Pediatric Audiology Programs. If you have questions about this initiative or the activities within, contact Meaghan McHugh at AUCD.

Promoting Inclusion in an Increasingly Diverse World
