About the Audiology Project

The founding of the Audiology Project occurred after five years of engaging in ongoing dialogue with small group of audiologists lead by audiologist, Kathy Dowd, communicating with the Centers for Disease Control about diabetic ear disease. The Audiology Project officially began as a not-for-profit in 2016 with a mission of improving the lives of people with chronic conditions, such as diabetes-induced hearing loss and balance problems through early audiology diagnosis, treatment and management.  Until very recently, the comorbidity of hearing loss, balance and diabetes was unknown to many agencies (including The Centers for Disease Control).
