My CHEO Story
My CHEO journey began at 2 years of age when I began treatment for various hearing conditions under Dr. David Schramm. I was followed for 16 years total during which I was involved in the first bone anchored hearing aid implantation for a pediatric patient in Ottawa.
Why I'm involved
As a long term patient of CHEO, I feel it is my duty to give back to the community that enabled me to grow unimpeded by my hearing disability. As a former patient, I am uniquely qualified to comment as a patient advocate in research initiatives.
