Twenty five participants joined with loops advocate Juliette Sterkens, Au.D., for a breakfast meeting-presentation on all things hearing: hearing loss, hearing aids, t-coils, hearing loops and cochlear implants.
In a 2013 issue of Hearing Loss Magazine, audiologist Juliette Sterkens noted that her long term goal is to make America more accessible for people with hearing loss and to be remembered as someone who helped her many patients enjoy life because of the audiology services she provided. Dr. Sterkens is well on her way to achieving those ends.
The recipient of a number of prestigious awards from professional organizations and HLAA, Dr. Sterkens has conducted a wildly successful accessibility initiative in her hometown Osh Kosh, Wisconsin and, now retired from active practice, continues to work as a hearing loops advocate. Dr. Sterkens travels across the country, working with HLAA chapters and hearing healthcare patient and professional groups to increase awareness about hearing loss the need for expanding the number of hearing-friendly places.
