This blog post from the American Speech-Hearing-Language Association contains an interview with the incoming Director of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), Dr. Debara Tucci. We hope that prevention of hearing loss, tinnitus, and hyperacusis will be among Dr. Tucci’s priorities for NIDCD.
