Happy birthday Audiology Worldnews!

April marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of the Audiology Worldnews website. We would like to thank all our readers who take the time to look through our frequently visited pages. Launched during the American Academy of Audiology event AudiologyNOW! in 2013, Audiology Worldnews is the website for hearing healthcare professionals across the globe that provides continuously updated quality international content. A network of local correspondents provides news, technical and medical articles, interviews, videos and industry events from many different countries.

After one year, we find our site chock-full of updated and ever-changing resources. Our news items have covered the latest research and development, scientific studies, company developments, market figures and global audiology events from across the continents. However, Audiology Worldnews is more than just a ‘news’ website. Those that have visited will have seen the ‘focus on’ section which covers subjects in much greater detail; medical reports, technical features, scientific articles and international conference overviews have all provided greater understanding of our audiology world.

During the last twelve months we have endeavoured to connect with more and more people. Audiology Worldnews websites are now available in Brazilian, Italian and German, with the Spanish version coming later this year. We have also launched ourselves head-first into the world of twitter with the account @audioworldnews. Why not follow and interact with us, the more the merrier!

There’s so much more to discover on the website so take some time to have a look around the company directory, videos, products and events listings, sign up for the newsletter and don’t forget our Audiology Worldnews app that you can download from the website or iTunes!

To celebrate our one-year anniversary, let’s take a look at the top five most read articles over the last twelve months!
