The American Academy of Audiology PAC supported Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA), a long-time champion for hearing health care and a previous sponsor of the Access to Frontline Health Care Act. The Academy’s contribution allowed California Academy of Audiology Board members Jacque Georgeson, AuD and Michelle Griffin, AuD to attend Congressman Garamendi’s 8th Annual Crab Feed Dinner in Vacaville, CA. This contribution also allowed Academy advocacy staff to attend an event in Washington, DC for Congressman Garamendi, further demonstrating the important impact that individual audiologists have in supporting the policy priorities of the Academy.
The Academy’s PAC is supported entirely by contributions from Academy members. Click here to learn more about the PAC and make your annual gift.
