Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Chapter Champion
Each American Academy of Pediatrics Chapter has identified at least one individual to serve as the EHDI Chapter Champion. This individual is responsible for leading and responding to health care provider concerns regarding newborn hearing screening in the state. The EHDI Chapter Champions are involved in working with the Virginia Department of Health EHDI staff as well as other pediatric health care providers in Virginia on EHDI programs and activities.
Chapter Champions seek opportunities for educating members of their respective chapters and other in the state on EHDI activities and are also involved in collaborating with their peers to influence state-level policy and programs related to children who are identified with hearing loss.
The Virginia EHDI Chapter Champion is Leslie Ellwood, M.D. Past President of the Virginia Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics and The Virginia Pediatric Society.
