Student Andrew Schuette:  "I recently won a travel scholarship to present a research poster at the 2009 Ear and Brain Conference sponsored by the National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research (NCRAR).  The research was titled, "Associations of individual patient factors on tinnitus treatment success."  It was a great opportunity to present to individuals in the field of audiology, I encourage every student to try to present their research (capstone project) at a conference.  The experience is invaluable."
