Dr. Betty Vohr honored for Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Excellence
Date:3/15/2012

Betty R. Vohr, MD, of Barrington, director of Women & Infants Hospital's Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic and medical director of the Rhode Island Hearing Assessment Program, has been presented with the national Antonia Brancia Maxon Award for Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Excellence. The award was presented at the National EHDI Meeting in St. Louis on March 5, 2012.

A graduate of Albany Medical College, Dr. Vohr has been the national coordinator of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network follow-up studies since 1990. Dr. Vohr is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics Task Force on Hearing, The Joint Committee of Infant Hearing (former Chair), and Chair of the Rhode Island Hearing Advisory Committee.

Dr. Vohr is participating in studies investigating the outcomes of premature infants and the outcomes of infants with hearing loss. She has published more than 200 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, as well as numerous textbook chapters.
