Mission and History of the New Jersey Academy of Audiology

 

The mission of the NJAA is to promote audiology as the primary profession in New Jersey for the delivery of hearing and balance care and to facilitate the ability of our members to identify, diagnose, treat, and prevent hearing and balance disorders through professional education, public awareness, and research initiatives.

The NJAA was founded in 1992 to serve as a resource for both professionals and consumers regarding information about hearing loss.

From the official press release announcing the organization of the NJAA::

The New Jersey Academy of Audiology (NJAA) has been approved by the State of New Jersey and the Internal Revenue Service to function as a non-profit, professional society whose members include licensed audiologists and other allied professional who provide services to the hearing impaired in New Jersey.

Robert M. DiSogra, AuD, FAAA, an audiologist in private practice in Freehold, will be serving as President.

“This is a very exciting time for audiologists in New Jersey. The NJAA has been organized for the purpose of promoting audiology as the primary profession in New Jersey for the delivery of hearing and balance care and to facilitate the members’ abilities to identify, diagnose, treat, and prevent hearing and balance disorders through professional education, public awareness, and research initiatives.”

“The NJAA shall provide leadership for upgrading professional standards by offering quality continuing education and by advocating the profession of audiology to regulatory and legislative bodies and shall advocate that audiologists are the primary providers of hearing health care in New Jersey,” DiSogra said.

The NJAA will work closely with the American Academy of Audiology (www.audiology.org).
