ReSound “Moments Movement” Awards Grants to Hearing Healthcare Professionals

ReSound is collecting patient stories and awarding monthly grants to the Hearing Healthcare Professionals that help make them possible.

Bloomington, MN, May 8, 2013http://www.gnresound.com – ReSound, a technology leader in hearing aid solutions, has launched the “Moments Movement” as a way to recognize Hearing Healthcare Professionals and elevate the patient “Moments” that inspire and motivate them daily.

Moments are the extra ordinary things that HHPs do to make the lives of their patients better. Every time a patient’s face lights up because they can hear again – that’s a Moment.  Moments make being a professional in hearing healthcare rewarding.

Through the Moments Movement, ReSound supports the professionals who counsel, coach and connect with their patients to find solutions to restore the joy of hearing. It’s a way to share these inspiring Moments and celebrate the contributions, efforts and energy that professionals bring to the work they do. ReSound is reaching out to the Hearing Health Community, inviting them to share the Moments that have inspired them the most.

To create awareness and support for the Moments Movement, ReSound is awarding a monthly Moment Maker Grant. For every Moment shared on ReSound’s Moments Web page, ReSound will add funds to the Moment Maker Grant. The Grant can be used by HHPs for continuing education, as a scholarship, or for charitable events or mission trips. Through the Moment Maker Grant, ReSound aspires to support professionals as they continue to create Moments with their patients.

Jennifer McGlothlin of Elite Audiology & Hearing Care was the first recipient of ReSound’s Moment Maker Grant. McGlothlin, a private practice owner in Mt. Juliet, TN, will use the grant to attend the Tinnitus Practitioners Association – Associate Course in December.

“I feel so blessed to have been awarded the first Moment Maker Grant,” said Jennifer McGlothlin, Au.D. “I have been wanting to attend the TPA course for a while now, but as a start-up practice owner, the funds just weren’t there. Now, I look forward to being able to help tinnitus sufferers with the knowledge I am sure to gain in this course. Thank you, ReSound, for helping us make special Moments with our patients.”

About Geoffrey Cooling

my name is Geoffrey Cooling and I am the author here at Just Audiology Stuff. I have been involved in the Hearing Healthcare Profession for several years now. I initially worked as a Hearing Healthcare Professional for a large national retailer in Ireland.

After several years in Practice I was approached to work for a manufacturer, where I was employed for five years. I am now the Co Founder of a business called Audiology Engine. We design websites, undertake content marketing and generally look after everything digital for audiological practices. I am also a contributor to many hearing profession periodicals and websites.

I have written two commercially available books, The Little Book of Hearing Aids which is written for hearing aid consumers and Audiology Marketing in a Digital World which is written for Audiology Practice Owners. They are both available in Paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon. I also write for consumers on the website Hearing Aid Know, which is a website with the mission of demystifying hearing aids, their types and their technology.

I have a great interest in commercial strategy as it applies to Healthcare in general and specifically to Hearing Healthcare. I also have a great interest in the psychology of sales and human interaction. I have been involved with social media for some time, both personally and professionally. I find the engagement and discourse on some social media channels fascinating.

I instituted social media strategy for the company I worked for as an experiment. That experiment soon spread throughout the company and I am proud to say that the company is probably one of the most active in the industry. I would like to point out that all views, opinions and thoughts here are mine own. Unless of course they have been planted by the pod people, you just can’t take your eyes off the pod people. Those views do not necessarily reflect upon any views or opinions held by my employer, if I ever get another one.

I think that our industry is in the middle of a time of huge change, I think that the change will be forced by both internal and external pressure. I think that private Independent Healthcare Practices will have to be smart and lithe of feet in order to meet these changes. I hope that some of my blatherings are of benefit to those Practices, Independent Hearing Healthcare Practices need to survive. I believe that if that occurs it will be of real benefit to Patients.

I hope that I, and my writings will play a small part in their continued success.

Let me know what you think
