Michigan Ear Institute's Annual Spring Conference

The Michigan Ear Institute—a leading center for the diagnosis, treatment, and research of ear, hearing, and balance disorders—holds an annual spring conference for otolaryngologists and audiologists. Their goal is to “provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to improve patient care and outcomes.” 

This year’s conference, held June 2-4, featured renowned experts in the field, who presented the latest advances and techniques in a wide array of subjects, including inner ear regenerative medicine, tinnitus, cochlear implantation, and comprehensive approaches to addressing hearing loss in adults.

MDHearing’s Dr. Sandra Porps presented on cochlear implant research at the Michigan Ear Institute, focusing on three key areas: cochlear implant outcomes in treating translabyrinthine resection of acoustic neuromas, cochlear implants as a solution for single-sided deafness, and employing an evidence-based approach to cochlear implant aftercare.

American Cochlear Implant Alliance’s 2023 Conference

The American Cochlear Implant Alliance is a not-for-profit organization with the purpose of advancing access to hearing provided by cochlear implantation through research, advocacy, and awareness. ACI Alliance hosted their annual international conference in Dallas, TX on June 7-10. 


Audiologists, physicians, speech pathologists, psychologists, advocates, and others involved in cochlear implantation were able to explore current and emerging topics for CI patients across the lifespan.

Additionally, she discussed the recent groundbreaking publication in Cochlear Implants International, highlighting the study’s findings and illustrating how Michigan Ear Institute revolutionized their aftercare approach to optimize the patient experience. By reducing patient chair time, results show an increased efficiency for both the patients and the clinic.
