"Hearing Rehabilitation for Acoustic Neuroma Patients"
Monday, October 26, 2015 
1 pm EDT, 12 pm CDT, 11 am MDT, 10 am PDT

Presented by:
Dr. Brian Neff, Otolaryngologist
Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN

We are very excited to continue our 2015 Fall Webinar Series by inviting ANA members to participate in a live webinar. Our topics are designed to cover key areas of interest relevant to AN patients, family and friends with plenty of time for questions and answers.
On October 26th, Dr. Neff will discuss hearing rehabilitation for acoustic neuroma patients. Most AN patients lose some or all of their hearing due to the location of the tumor on the hearing nerve or through treatment of the tumor. This presentation will discuss options for hearing restoration following treatment, including information on hearing aids, contralateral routing of sound, and the rare patient that may be helped by a cochlear implant or auditory brainstem implant. 
Whether you are newly diagnosed or years post-op, please plan to join us for this very informative session.
