The American Tinnitus Association (ATA) is to host a joint networking event with the British Tinnitus Association (BTA). The evening will take place on January 25, 2020 at the Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO) Mid-Winter Meeting in San Jose, California.

This uniting of tinnitus associations across the big pond brings a rare opportunity for leading researchers to get together on collaborative projects in the field. Chief Executive of ATA, Torryn Brazell, commented: "The ATA promotes synergy between dedicated medical professionals and researchers within the tinnitus community. With our colleagues at the BTA, we want to extend this community to bring in new groups, who will bring with them new insight and experiences,"

Meanwhile, Chief Executive of the BTA, David Stockdale, said "We want to bring even more people together to start even more discussions and to spark off each other, which could really push forward progress towards a cure.”

"The ARO Mid-Winter meeting is the premier basic science meeting for hearing and balance researchers. Torryn and I are really keen to bring researchers together to facilitate the kind of discussions and partnerships that we know could bring huge benefits to the millions of people currently living with tinnitus," continued Stockdale.
