Each month CHAI likes to recognize and celebrate its Members, Community Partners, and Ambassadors.This month we are featuring Dana Urbanski, PhD, AuD, CCC-A. Dr. Urbanski is a clinical audiologist and a current Robert L. Kane Postdoctoral Fellow in Aging, Long-Term Care, and Dementia at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Broadly, her research interests lie in tailoring and individualizing hearing aid service delivery to promote long-term hearing aid use and acceptance in older adults with hearing loss. Specifically, her current research focuses on optimizing hearing aid services, support, and education for community-dwelling older adults with co-occurring dementia and hearing loss and their family caregivers. Dr. Urbanski’s recent PhD dissertation research was funded and supported by two competitive University of Minnesota doctoral fellowships—the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellowship and Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship.
