Prof. Piotr H. Skarżyński was elected as an Auditor of the European Federation of Audiological Societies (EFAS) on May 24, 2019 at the 14th EFAS Congress in Lisbon.

– This choice is a great distinction for me. I highly esteem activities of EFAS and I hope that in the next few years the Federation’s activity will be as effective as before – commented prof. Piotr H. Skarżyński.

The European Federation of Audiological Societies brings together members from 35 countries, including audiologists, otolaryngologists and hearing aid specialists. The aim of the EFAS is to enable the exchange of information and experience in the field of education, training, hearing assessment, screening and scientific research. That way of collaboration benefits patients with hearing impairments, and encourages researchers to scientific collaboration.

It is worth noting that the World Congress EFAS 2011 took place in 2011 in Warsaw and was devoted to early treatment of hearing and speech disorders. The congress was attended by nearly 800 specialists – doctors and scientists from around the world, who presented the latest research results in the field of hearing impairments.
