Erin Miller, AuD, represented the American Academy of Audiology PAC at a fundraising reception over the holidays for Congressman Tim Ryan of Ohio, held in Canton on December 14. Congressman Ryan is a member of the powerful Appropriations and Budget Committees in the House of Representatives, and he is a strong and longtime supporter of the audiology community.

He is a current co-sponsor of the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Act (HR 1344) and the Hearing Aid Tax Credit Act (HR 1882), which are part of the Academy’s legislative agenda for the 114th Congress. The Congressman also co-sponsored the Academy’s Direct Access bill in the 113th Congress.  Importantly, Dr. Miller was able to thank Congressman Ryan for his willingness to meet, listen, and discuss hearing-related issues of importance to the profession of audiology.  She specifically mentioned the Congressman’s, Legislative Director, Anne Sokolov, as being especially open and helpful over the years.
