Pediatric Vestibular Screenings Conducted Throughout Guatemala

Dr. Paty Castellanos, of Guatemala City, Guatemala, one of Central America’s foremost audiologists, recently conducted pediatric vestibular screenings on 700+ hearing impaired children throughout Guatemala.  The children, previously identified, were being seen at McDonald’s restaurants for their hearing aid fittings as part of an ongoing philanthropic initiative performed by Dr. Castellanos and her colleagues.  Dr. Castellanos in collaboration with Dr. Richard Gans of AIB, who designed the study utilizing the Gans Sensory Organization Performance Test, will be reporting their findings in a major publication early next year.  Felicidades, Dra. Castellanos!
