Brisbane to Host Paediatric Hearing and Speech Symposium

A US-headquartered paediatric health symposium has chosen Brisbane as its first-ever Asia Pacific host city, with 500 global experts to meet in March 2021. The successful bid for the AG Bell Global Listening and Spoken Language Symposium was led by economic development board Brisbane Marketing in partnership with Hear and Say, a local non-for-profit providing early intervention services for children with hearing loss.

“This conference will significantly boost Hear and Say’s profile, enhancing our reputation as specialists on an international scale, and showcasing our Brisbane HQ as a centre of excellence for paediatric hearing healthcare, research and training,” said Hear and Say’s Clinical Director, Emma Rushbrooke. “We are doing some great research here in Australia and now we are being recognised internationally for our excellent level of service for children with hearing loss.”
