This presentation will benefit all professionals working with patients with hearing loss, including audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and physicians of all levels.
David Friedmann, M.D., is a neurotologist and skull base surgeon in the department of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at NYU. He completed his training in medicine, otolaryngology and otology/neurotology at NYU. His clinical interests include cochlear implantation in children and adults and he has published widely on this topic including: single-sided deafness, adolescents, and outcomes studies with different electrode types. He also has an interest in studying and improving music perception through cochlear implants. Dr. Friedmann has a background in health services research and work related to improving the efficiency and quality of health care delivery.
Dr. Daniel Jethanamest, M.D., is a neurotologist and the Director of the Division of Otology and Neurotology within the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center. He pursued his undergraduate education at Columbia University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. He attended New York University School of Medicine where he received his Doctorate of Medicine. He completed his residency at NYU training in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery and completed a fellowship in Neurotology/Skull base surgery at the University of Miami Ear Institute before returning to join the faculty at NYU. While caring for patients with all forms of ear related disorders, He also continues to apply his unique background in computer science to innovative translational research in the field of cochlear implantation and improving patient outcomes.
William H. Shapiro, Au.D., received his Master of Arts degree in Audiology from Queens College of the CUNY in 1978 and received his Doctorate of Audiology from Arizona School of Health Sciences, A.T. Still University in 2007.
