NHS 2010 - Beyond Newborn Hearing Screening: Infant and Childhood Hearing 
in Science and Clinical Practice
Villa Erba Congress Center, Cernobbio, Italy
June 8-10, 2010

We are pleased to announce that the NHS Conference will be held once again 
in Cernobbio (Italy) from June 8 until June 10, 2010.

We cordially invite you to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the historic 
Lake Como conferences.
The first NHS, held in 2000, was a follow-up to the successful Milan 1998 
European Consensus Development Conference and began the Millennium by 
paving the way for a new era in the care of infants with hearing loss. 
In the past 10 years the field of Newborn Hearing Screening and Early 
Intervention Programs has undergone tremendous advancement. 
Many countries throughout the world have well-established highly successful 
programs, yet there are still countries and regions that are well behind, 
which need support to forge ahead. Since the NHS Conferences have been the fuel 
to start and to maintain the engine, it is not difficult to predict that the 
2010 NHS may be the final impetus in establishing early identification and 
intervention as a concrete reality worldwide.

Technology for hearing aids, cochlear implants and audiological equipment 
is making continuous and impressive developments, thus offering 
increasingly reliable and affordable solutions. Still, one of the great 
omissions in too many intervention programs is the crucial role of parents 
within the process.  Implementing improved systemic protocols and practices 
which encourage informed choice and the empowerment of families with 
children who are deaf or have hearing loss must be a fundamental objective 
to ensure the effectiveness of programs worldwide.

The NHS 2010 will include keynote addresses, special sessions, workshops, 
a number of satellite events, free communications and massive poster sessions.

You are cordially invited to attend the NHS 2010 International Conference, 
and we would like for you to join us in making this historic event another 
great success!
