It has been a busy couple of months here at the offices, but it certainly does pay off when things like this happen!

Joyce Hill Cooley RN, BC-HIS, COHC and Cynthia Bradley,  BC-HIS, both National Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialists, from our local Miracle-Ear franchise were awarded for their excellence in continuing education by the Missouri Hearing Society at their Annual Convention and Education Seminar in Kansas City, Missouri last week!

Franchise owner Cooley received the Platinum Award for 36 hours of excellence in continuing education while Bradley received the Gold Award for 24 hours.  The Missouri Hearing Society also recognizes those putting forth extra effort in advanced training in hearing instrument dispensing in 2011.  They weren’t the only ones that attended though!  Staff members Katie Issgrigs, Hearing Instrument Specialist (HIS) and Beth Eschmann, HIS Trainee also attended the two day meeting.

The convention, which took place March 1-4, had a number of speakers from across the country attend including Ted Venema, PhD.  Venema recently created and began Canada’s 4th and most recent Hearing Instrument Specialist Training program at Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ontario.  The 2nd edition of his text book, Compression for Clinicians, was released in 2006.
