The Hearing Review is proud to announce that Folio 2016 has selected the magazine as a finalist for the 2016 Eddie & Ozzie Awards. The magazine was chosen as a candidate for an Eddie Award, along with five other finalists, in the Best Full Issue, Business-to-Business (B-to-B) category for healthcare trade magazines.
Hearing Review‘s selection as an award finalist was for its September 2015 issue, which was published in both print and digital format.
Hearing Review Editor in Chief Karl E. Strom worked with Guest Editor and hearing healthcare expert Douglas L. Beck, AuD, who gathered an “expert roundtable” of audiologists and hearing care researchers who contributed short articles, or seven “chapters” in a series, for the issue. These chapters were compiled as a special section devoted to cognition, audition, and amplification.
To produce the issue, Strom and Beck worked alongside Publisher Dana McLain and Associate Editor Christa S. Nuber. Art Director Ashley Miller created the eye-catching design and layout.
The first chapter in the special section was authored by Dr Beck, and titled, “The State of the Art: Hearing Impairment, Cognitive Decline, and Amplification.” Chapter 1: A review of contemporary research…and what it might imply for our future.”
Other featured chapters in the special section included:
“Beyond Audibility: The Role of Supra-threshold Auditory Processing and Cognition in Presbycusis.” Chapter 3: The interactions between aging, cognition, and listening ability (Christian Fullgrabe, PhD);
“The Amplification of New Information.” Chapter 6: To learn new things, you need a clear message (Andrea Pittman, PhD);
Other contributors of additional articles or columns in the September 2015 issue were Wayne J. Staab, PhD (“The Independent Hearing Aid Dispenser”); Marshall Chasin, AuD (“Back to Basics: In-ear Monitors Need to be Aimed at the Eardrum…True or False?”); Robert Sweetow, PhD, Francis Kuk, PhD, and Sueli Caporali, PhD (“A Controlled Study on the Effectiveness of Fractal Tones on Subjects with Minimal Need for Amplification”); and Dennis Van Vliet, AuD (“The Final Word: Ensuring Benefit from Experience.”)
