Dr Kelvin Kong, an ear, nose and throat specialist gives us the score on Otitis Media and the importance on ear health for Hearing Awareness Week
I always knew that I wanted a job where I could help people. I got into audiology to become a part of a team in improving the ear health of Indigenous people.

I too had grown up with middle ear issues as a child and had grommets; this was definitely an impetus for me getting into audiology.
