Stelios Dokianakis Audiologist Michigan

Dr. Dokianakis at the State Capitol Advocating for Audiology

Dr. Dokianakis and other Audiologists from the Michigan Audiology Coalition were at the State Capitol to meet with lawmakers, advocating for Audiology.

Dr. D said that “There were two main issues: 1) Asking for universal CMV testing for newborns, a virus that can lead to hearing loss and other neurologic issues, and 2) to oppose House Bill 5777, which introduces more beaurocracy, cost and unncecessary goverment control regarding ASL (american sign language) for children with hearing loss.”

We will post more details on these issues and why they are important. Stay tuned.
