Part of the ARO mission is to promote hearing and balance education and research through a variety of outreach mechanisms. We seek to connect our scientific community to the general public, educational centers, government, and other stakeholders that want to support and apply tomorrow’s scientific discoveries.
One connection point is through Outreach Events during annual MidWinter Meetings. Past events have included Public Speakers, Interactive Education, Science Cafe and SymphonyScience.
Another initiative is the ARO Speaker’s Bureau, which we will launch later this year.
The Educational Resources pages of our Outreach site are a new feature. Here you can find links to information about hearing and related topics, some geared toward scientists and others for the general public. We also posted stunning image data from the research labs of our members. We have plans to increase the Educational Resource content in the future.
