Workshop: The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will host a workshop in Washington, DC on April 18, 2017 to examine several crucial issues raised by hearing health and technology, particularly hearing aids and devices with similar functions and features. The workshop will bring together researchers, health care providers, industry representatives, consumer representatives, policymakers, and others to examine ways in which enhanced competition and innovation might increase the availability and adoption of hearing aids by those consumers who need them.

The daylong workshop, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Constitution Center, 400 7th St. SW, Washington, DC 20024. Pre-registration is advised.
