SAC is pleased to announce that it has been invited to join the World Health Organization’s World Hearing Forum (WHF). The WHF is a global network of stakeholders promoting ear and hearing care worldwide. The goal of the Forum is to galvanize action towards a world in which no person experiences hearing loss due to preventable causes and those with hearing loss can achieve their full potential through early identification and appropriate support.
 
SAC will actively participate in the WHF and contribute to its advocacy and public awareness goals. We intend to use this opportunity to contribute to this important cause and continue to represent Canadian audiologists on the world stage.

The Forum’s opening Membership Assembly will be held in Geneva, Switzerland on December 4 and 5. We look forward to continuing to update our members and associates on the Forum’s activities.
