2011 Hearing Restoration Initiative Summit
 
In October 2011, Hearing Health Foundation held the Hearing Restoration Initiative Summit.  This was the first consumer conference to focus on cell regeneration and hosted some of science's brightest minds, along with leading funders and nonprofits.  By issuing a rallying cry, Hearing Health Foundation has made cell regeneration research and funding a significant priority.
 
Topics included what is cell regeneration and what are the implications as well as a panel discussion.  If you missed the event, check out the summit videos and speaker bios below.
