December 12, 2017 – Cerumen Management Workshop

Our Cerumen Management Workshop with Dr. Jacob Johnson was a success! The event was hosted by CAA at the University of the Pacific in Stockton on December 12th, 2017. We had 30+ attendees. Dr. Johnson was a wonderful speaker and the hands-on training was well-organized. Stay tuned for the next regional event in your area!
