Join us for this unique opportunity to take a deep dive into Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) policy.  This workshop will introduce trainees to discipline-relevant policy matters, with a special emphasis on EHDI reauthorization and its implications for how state programs are carried out.  

Ms. Caroline Goncalves Jones, Associate Director of Federal Advocacy for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Assocation (ASHA), will be the guest facilitator.

Learning Objectives

  • Trainees will learn about the basis for federal EHDI legislation;
  • Identify and discuss key issues that lawmakers are currently considering; and
  • Work in team to develop effective advocacy strategies, includes ones that engage trainees and professionals from other disciplines

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is intended for LEND pediatric audiology trainees and faculty who wish to learn more about EHDI policy and its implications for clinical practice.


The workshop will take place from 12:00pm to 2:00pm on Sunday, March 8 at the Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, site of the 14th annual EHDI meeting. A complimentary boxed lunch will be available to all those who register by February 19.
