Three Leading Telecommunications and Technology Organizations Sponsor the AG Bell Listening and Spoken Language Knowledge Center
Date:2/25/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 24, 2013

Three leading telecommunications and hearing technology organizations— CapTel®, MED-EL Corporation, and Oticon—have become major sponsors of the AG Bell Listening and Spoken Language Knowledge Center, the Internet resource for adults and children with hearing loss, their families and the professionals who support them. The “Partners in Hearing” sponsorship will advance the organization’s common goals of providing resources and information that raise awareness of new technology options that support individuals who use listening and spoken language.

“AG Bell appreciates the generous support of our sponsors who have become partners in building one of the most comprehensive resources for information, support, training, and advocacy for listening and spoken language,” said AG Bell President Donald M. Goldberg, Ph.D., CCC-SLP/A, FAAA, LSLS Cert. AVT.

Each sponsor is identified with a specific area or information channel for the Knowledge Center—Learn, Connect, and Advocate—and their sponsorship is identified on the landing page for these channels. Sponsors will be featured in the weekly AG Bell e-newsletter that provides readers with content related to these themes.

Sponsors also will be able to make a valuable contribution to the Knowledge Center by providing informational articles and videos that will add to the resources available to children and adults, their families and professionals worldwide. Readers of AG Bell’s bimonthly Volta Voices magazine will receive highlights of informational resources offered by sponsors as part of the “New in the Knowledge Center” column.

Knowledge Center sponsors will be highly visible in materials for the 2013 AG Bell Listening and Spoken Language Symposium which will be held on July 18-20, 2013 at the Omni Los Angeles Hotel at California Plaza.
