Protecting HearingWe all love summer. Picnics, baseball, swimming, boating, hiking, bike rides, and, best of all, summer concerts in the park or at the shore! Music outdoors is just special! But there is a catch to everything. Many of the activities we love present sound at levels that are potentially hazardous.

With a career spanning everything from private practice operation and educating future audiologists to be part of the early research that has shaped today's digital hearing aid technology, to say Dr. Elizabeth Kennedy has immersed herself in the field of audiology would be an understatement.

After working as a clinical audiologist in a hospital-based program, she decided to go back to school for her Ph.D. -- all the while keeping her skills sharp by operating a small private practice.
