Ohio State University Goes to Capitol Hill

March 30, 2016
Ohio State AuD students on Capital Hill
The frigid temperatures and snow flurries in Washington, DC, did not discourage a group of passionate and determined students from making the almost eight-hour drive from Ohio. These students had one goal in mind, and that was to help advocate for national policies on hearing health care. Students planned to accomplish this goal by presenting information and educating legislatures about issues affecting the profession of audiology and patients with hearing loss. On Friday, March 4, 15 students from The Ohio State University (OSU) Chapter of the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) descended upon Capitol Hill. This trip marked the fourth consecutive year that students from OSU have funded, planned, and accomplished an advocacy trip to DC. This particular group of students encompassed those with previous experience speaking with legislatures and first-timers looking to become more involved. The students from OSU have recognized the importance of advocacy early on in their careers and are looking to serve as voices to critical advocacy efforts for audiology.

Why did you pursue degrees in speech and hearing science and psychology at Ohio State? When I first applied to Ohio State I wanted to go into finance because I thought I wanted to be a sports agent. I changed my mind after I worked at the James Cancer Hospital with terminally ill patients and then, over the summer, with young children with hearing loss and delayed learning issues. I loved both of those jobs and they sparked something in me – that I wanted my career to be about helping others and especially, helping others communicate.
