2024 Early Hearing Detection & Intervention Conference
March 17-19, 2024 • Denver, CO
State Stakeholders' Meetings
WHAT is a State Stakeholders’ meeting?
The goal of the EHDI Annual Conference is to enhance the implementation of comprehensive state-based Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs. The Stakeholders’ meeting is a time for states/territories to meet to discuss topics important to their Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs. The goal of the stakeholder meetings is to build upon information and networking opportunities established during the conference.
NEW for 2024:
State/Territory Stakeholder Meetings have immense value within the EHDI System. In the past, a time was designated for these meetings during the conference, but we are planning something new this year. For 2024, most Stakeholder Meetings will be held outside of the EHDI Conference. They can be held in advance of the conference and/or as a follow up to the conference. There is also limited availability for some meetings to be held onsite in Denver; however, the meetings would take place outside of the conference session schedule.
WHO should attend the Stakeholders’ Meeting?
All conference attendees, regardless of their role, can join their state/territory meeting to learn more about current goals or initiatives to decrease the number of children who are lost to follow-up/documentation and increase the number of infants screened no later than one month of age, diagnosed no later than three months of age and enrolled in early intervention no later than six months of age. The stakeholder meeting is facilitated by the EHDI Coordinator (or a designee) for each state/territory.
HOW will I find out about the Stakeholders’ Meeting for my state/territory?
When you register for the conference, you will be asked if it is okay to share your contact information with your EHDI Coordinator. The EHDI Coordinators will contact registrants from their state/territory to share plans for a meeting time. If you have questions about this or want more information about your state’s meeting, please feel free to contact your state EHDI Coordinator.
