was created in the summer of 2012 by Al Malyarovich, Dusty Richards, and Caleb McNiece to provide a neutral forum for discussion of all aspects of audiology. There are many great professional organizations within the field and the many professionals have very strong beliefs and opinions. We hope the forums becomes an independent outlet for professionals of all sorts in audiology to interact and express themselves and for those seeking to become a part of this great field. We are all currently students and hope to strengthen the future our field and hope you become a part of this as well. We want AFN to be dynamic, interactive community for professionals and students alike. Hope to see you there!
