Cochlear Implant Research Participant Testimonial

“As a mature woman, taking part in research studies is one way to contribute to diversity and inclusion in medicine. Knowing that my input and participation in studies may lead to the development of better services for people with disabilities is a way for me to give back. Being a part of UNC audiology and CI research has allowed me to fulfill my goal of educating and advocating for the need of more women and minorities to participate in research studies and trials.” – Michele Randolph
