Combating Hearing Impairment One Ear at a Time
Globally, 360 million people experience hearing loss and one in six Australians are currently affected by a hearing impairment, resulting in a wide range of adverse health, social and financial impacts. By 2050, one in four Australians will have some form of hearing loss.
At Macquarie, Professor David McAlpine (Professor of Hearing, Language and the Brain and Director of Hearing Research) along with a range of leading academics and clinicians are researching what the physical, mental and social impacts hearing loss creates for the sufferer and their networks.
This is a unique opportunity for alumni and University staff to hear from a 2016 Australian Laureate Fellow and gain frontline insight on Macquarie’s groundbreaking research into hearing loss.
