LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!
AVAA continues to oppose Section 4 of HR 3471, the Veterans Mobility Safety Act of 2015 (H.R. 353 known as Fit to Serve) and amendment 21 of HR 5620.
HR 3471 was recently passed by the House of Representatives. HR 5620 is still in Committee. It is important to stop the advance of a companion bill S. 563 from passing the Senate. The language in S. 563 is similar the wording in the H.R. 353 (Fit to Serve) and does not contain the compromise language in H.R. 3471.
Welcome to the Association of VA Audiologists (AVAA)
The Association of VA Audiologists (AVAA) is an employee organization that was established in 2001 to address the professional needs and concerns of audiologists within the Veterans Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
The goal is to achieve and maintain the highest quality of patient care, training, and research by individual audiologists and the programs in which they are housed. It is also the purpose of the AVAA to promote Audiology within the VA and outside the VA at regional, state and national levels and to establish professional and working ties with other related governmental and/or professional groups.
