St. Joseph's/Candler Center for Oto-Neurology to sponsor 40th annual Neuro-Audiology Seminar

The Center for Oto-Neurology at St. Joseph’s/Candler is proud to sponsor the 40th annual Neuro-Audiology Seminar April 12-13 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Savannah, Ga. These meetings continue to grow in popularity because not only do we emphasize practical clinical knowledge and feature a nationally recognized speaker, but we also incorporate the “Charm of Savannah” into our planned activities.

The Center for Oto-Neurology was established in 1977 and includes audiology, speech/language pathology, EEG, vestibular/balance rehabilitation and our Movement Disorders Program. We provide state-of-the-art diagnostics and therapy for patients with ear, hearing, balance, speech/language and central nervous system disorders. Learn more about our services here
