CI2019 Pediatric STUDENT POSTER COMPETITION
ACI Alliance held a student poster competition during CI2019 Pediatric, which was open to undergraduate and graduate students, and residents. Twenty-three posters were entered into the competition. Posters were judged on content, organization, originality, merit, and student presentation.
This year, we had three winners: Gabrielle Watson; Oregon Health & Science University, won for her poster “Barriers to Care for Latino Pediatric Cochlear Implant Recipients.”
Phillip Mittman; Unfallkrenkenhaus Berlin, won for his poster "Intracochlear pressure changes during cochlear implant electrode insertion with the 'pullback' technique."
Jessica MacLean; Frost School of Music, University of Miami, won for her poster "The impact of a drumming-to-speech intervention on prosody perception in children with cochlear implants: An exploratory study."
Honorable mentions for posters were awarded to Katelyn Berg; Vanderbilt University for "A longitudinal comparison of performance on a quick measure of spectral modulation detection (QSMD) between electrode types”, Gina Lauer; Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin for "Intracochlear pressure changes during CI electrode insertion - modifications for minimizing intracochlear pressure", and Elaine Smolen; Teachers College, Columbia University for "Language Input and Vocabulary Development for Children with Hearing Loss: 1-Year Follow-Up.”
We are grateful to the students and residents who participated in our second competition and to the judges for volunteering their time to engage with the students.
