We are proud to announce our very own audiologist, Dr. Lena Kyman, is a finalist in the Hearing Care Practitioner category of Oticon’s 2018 Focus on People Awards! The Hearing Care Practitioner category recognizes hearing care professionals who demonstrate caring and commitment that goes above and beyond by promoting awareness and understanding of hearing loss in their communities and the world.
Dr. Kyman is passionate about hearing health care and aims to increase access for underserved populations both locally and around the world. She works with children, adults, veterans, and with patients of all abilities and backgrounds. She is a provider for a nonprofit organization committed to assisting patients with limited financial resources. Dr. Kyman has volunteered her professional services on humanitarian missions that she describes as “life-changing” in underserved communities around the world, including Brazil, Guatemala, Honduras, Croatia, and Costa Rica. These experiences have deepened her appreciation for how sustainable hearing care and technology can transform lives and bring joy to people with hearing loss and their families. In addition to practicing audiology full-time at ENT & Audiology Associates, Dr. Kyman is active in the NC Audiology Association and is an adjunct assistant professor at Shaw University.
