A.T. Still University-Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) alumnus Jason Leyendecker, AuD, ’10, was recently elected to serve on the board of directors for the Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA).
“Being a board member is a tremendous honor. I look forward to serving the audiology profession with some amazing colleagues that I know will continue to make positive change for our industry,” Dr. Leyendecker said. “We face many challenges ahead and I hope I am able to represent audiology well. I am thankful for those who voted me into this position, and I hope I make them proud.”
Dr. Leyendecker is a clinical audiologist and owner of Audiology Concepts, a private practice with five locations in Minnesota. The primary focus of this practice is audiology and hearing devices, while Dr. Leyendecker has a separate tinnitus clinic called The Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Clinic of Minnesota, according to the ADA announcement.
Dr. Leyendecker is continuing an ATSU-ASHS legacy by serving on the ADA board of directors.
