Family Circle -- audiology awareness

While on recent vacation my wife brought this to my attention.

In the June 24th 1997 issue, the USA magazine Family Circle ran an article
about consumer rip-offs and hearing aids were mentioned in the article.
Family Circle has huge public exposure since it is found at nearly every
grocery check-out line.

Among other suggestions, the freelance writer suggested that to avoid
getting ripped off one should have their hearing checked by an *otologist*!
The word audiologist was never mentioned in the article. The writer may
have obtained information for the article from the National Fraud
Information Center.

Letters should be directed to:

OTOH, kudos to Popular Mechanics for a recent good article (IMO) about the
digital technology. This author knew who the hearing aid specialist is.

Now back to the thread that will never end...
