The CI2018 Emerging Issues Symposium is a forum for hearing health clinicians, scientists, students and governmental officials to come together to share research and best clinical practices relating to cochlear implants and other implantable auditory devices. The Symposium will feature 2 ½ days of clinical research presentations. This popular format combines invited speakers and panels on key emerging issues as well as submitted podium and poster presentations.

On Wednesday, prior to the official meeting start, we welcome our members to participate in ACI Alliance on the Hill. This is an opportunity to share our perspectives on cochlear implant care and access with both members of Congress and appointed officials.
