Need to Know    
Welcome back to the Pulse Tone!  This is the second installment of the New Professional’s e-newsletter.  You can find the first installment here.  We know you are busy and receive many emails so we promise to keep this short but informative.

Wait a second—who is "we"?

“We” is the New Professionals Committee. We’ve been around for a few years now, and are tasked with identifying and promoting the needs of new professionals (NPs) within the Academy. Communication is a two-way street, and we want to improve our connections with all of our fellow NPs.

  • The House of Representatives proposed changes to the tax code which would have negatively impacted graduate students (including those in the audiology field) by making tuition waivers taxable.  The Academy opposed this tax proposal due to the impact on higher education students.
  • Fortunately, when the Senate and the House reconciled their differing tax reform bills the tax waiver on tuition was kept.  This means that graduate students will not have to pay taxes on their tuition  Many members of congress came out in opposition of this change after graduate students across the nation protested.  Involvement and advocacy can make a difference!
Have You Heard?    

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved a feature that would allow for remote programming of Cochlear Americas Nucleus CIs in patients who have had more than 6 months of cochlear implant experience and are comfortable with the programming process. Data evaluated by the FDA showed no significant difference in performance between in-person and remote programming.  The FDA additionally evaluated cybersecurity measures for the remote connection and patient perception of their experience with remote programming prior to granting the approval.
