BHI Unveils Blogging Community

June 12, 2009


BHI is into blogging!

In 2009 the Board of Directors of the Better Hearing Institute determined that it was strategically imperative for the BHI to develop an interactive website. Social media is clearly moving toward instant interactive communication. So, the BHI has developed a professional blogging community. This will be followed later in the year by the development of a consumer discussion forum.

The BHI Blogging community is composed of 36 professionals including leading academics, hearing health practitioners, not-for-profit leaders and editors of four industry journals. The Blog is segmented into seven areas targeted toward the general public (though hearing health professionals will find the blogs of interest):

  • Family and Relationships
  • Hearing Loss
  • Hearing Healthcare Journey
  • Hearing Loss Prevention
  • Technology Corner
  • Pediatrics
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)

BHI President Cathy Henderson Jones stated "The development of this blog is a significant achievement. With the further development of a consumer discussion forum I am confident that this will make BHI a more savvy and consumer friendly partner for you and move us another step further as an Advocate for America's Ears™"
