Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Advisory Committee
The EHDI Advisory Committee collaborates with state and federal partners to achieve the guidelines of the Universal Newborn Hearing Screening grant received by the Department from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
This committee is composed of stakeholders that reflect the comprehensive EHDI system, including health care professionals, parents/families of deaf or hard of hearing children, individuals that are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as various state program representatives. The objective of this committee is to provide advice to the grant recipient on potential mechanisms to achieve project goals, strategies, and objectives.
