Letter from Craig Buchman, MD
Chair, Board of Directors, ACI Alliance
Dear Friends,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, welcome to CI 2015 in
rd
Washington, DC—the 3 Annual Meeting of the American Cochlear
Implant Alliance. We are excited that you have joined us to interact with
your peers from the United States and around the world. All of us will
learn and share information and experiences about Emerging Issues in
Cochlear Implantation. In addition to areas that are cogent to our
mission, we will have panels that explore auditory brainstem implantation
in children, quality of life, objective measures, and a special session devoted to living with a
cochlear implant and connectivity. We have an extraordinary group of featured expert
speakers and invited special guests to bolster the program. This will be a memorable
exchange.
We are grateful to those who arrived early to visit with national legislators to share information
on the needs of children and their families and adults with hearing loss. As you know, the ACI
Alliance remains hard at work, trying to improve access to cochlear implantation. The
advocacy effort at this meeting is critical to expanding awareness among legislators and staff
regarding hearing loss, cochlear implants and the impact that our intervention has on an
individual’s life. Through this work, we are hopeful that politicians will be empowered to make
decisions that improve access and ultimately change the lives of adults and children with
hearing loss.
Don’t miss the Member Meeting (open to all conference attendees) on Friday morning where
we will share our recent accomplishments and provide time for our ACI Alliance State
Champions to describe their local efforts to address public and private insurance plan
coverage, early intervention, and general awareness among elected and appointed officials.
We are proud of their ongoing efforts to address access at the state and national levels.
On Saturday morning, a special synergy session on Hearing Restoration and Neuroscience
will feature Internet guru Vinton Cerf as he moderates a freewheeling, interdisciplinary
discussion engaging three distinguished scientists whose seminal work on cochlear implants
intersects broader brain science topics.
We wish you a highly rewarding conference experience!
Sincerely,
Craig A. Buchman, MD

Live Polling
The Thursday afternoon Twilight presenters will be conducting live polls during
each session utilizing the Guidebook mobile app. To participate in a poll, first find
the poll link in the guide, which is located at the bottom of the session details
screen. Simply click the link for the poll and the Voting Page will be displayed.
This page is synchronized to the question being presented, meaning you cannot
start the poll nor can you freely navigate to the previous or next question. If the
presenter
has not started the poll, you will see the Poll Inactive Page.
Once the presenter starts the poll, the guide will automatically show the first
question and its choices. Once the speaker enables voting, the choices will now
have a clickable button next to each choice that you can use to vote. Before the
vote is actually submitted, a confirmation dialog will appear asking you to confirm
your choice. Please vote carefully because once you confirm your vote, you
cannot change it.
Identification & Security
We expect a protest demonstration by an anti-cochlear implant group in front of
our hotel during the conference. To avoid any disruption in or outside of the hotel,
we have initiated a number of security measures. The issues that could
potentially arise do not involve personal safety; rather the demonstrators may
attempt to enter the conference area to disrupt our educational sessions. Please
follow these
conference guidelines so that we can promote a positive experience for all.

ACI ALLIANCE CI 2015: EMERGING ISSUES IN COCHLEAR IMPLANTATION
Course Learning Objectives
After attending this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
1. Explain medical considerations and intervention needs associated with
ABI placement in children.
2. Describe how electrically evoked compound action potential responses
change with polarity and interphase gap.
3. Describe measures of utility critical to understanding patients’ valuation
of cochlear implantation.
4. Compare and discuss literacy outcomes for children implanted during the
1990s with those of children receiving cochlear implants after 2000.
5. Discuss advantages of various cochlear implant candidacy measures
relative to adult performance.
6. Explain the rationale for expanding cochlear implant indications in
children and adults including candidates with normal to less severe
hearing loss in one ear.
7. Describe how various hearing assistance technologies improve speech
recognition performance.
8. Describe clinical considerations in utilizing electric-acoustic stimulation.
Course Description
The principal goal of this conference is to open the pathways between
research and clinical application in the cochlear implant realm by facilitating
timely sharing of information between scientists, clinicians, and educators.
Cochlear implant candidacy and outcomes have advanced reflecting
technology improvements, early identification, and better linkage between the
surgical intervention and follow-up care. Children and adults with a range of
hearing losses and other issues are now benefiting importantly from
traditional cochlear implants as well as electric-acoustic stimulation and
auditory brainstem implants. Cochlear implant candidacy guidelines have
changed to include children and adults with more residual hearing as well as
other anatomic, health, and learning issues that would have been considered
“absolute” or “relative” contraindications in the past. Utilization of other
technologies, in combination with the cochlear implant device, have provided
further expansions in outcomes bringing recipients even closer to “normal”
hearing. With all of these changes have come a new recognition of the
quality of life changes and cost utility made possible when the right device is
matched to appropriate patients.

Featuring a Music Demonstration and Discussion by Richard Reed
Richard Reed will play throughout the Reception. A special program will
be held at 6:30 pm. ACI Alliance member Richard Reed has played
Hammond organ and piano with Junior Walker & the All Stars, Otis
Rush, Hubert Sumlin, Roomful of Blues, Mark Cutler, and many other
R&B, Blues and Rock & Roll artists. He is a 2015 inductee to the Rhode
Island Music Hall of Fame. Unable to appreciate music- or even have a
so-called "normal" conversation- for nearly ten years, Richard's hearing
was restored through a combination of cochlear implant surgery and neuroplasticity. An advocate for hearing
and "music loss" all over the world, Richard demonstrates how music really sounds through an electric ear.

Donna’s Favorite Restaurants
The neighborhoods surrounding the Omni Shoreham are lively and diverse. And they
have wonderful restaurants at all price ranges. Here are five of my favorites that are
walking distance from the hotel.
Cashion’s Eat Place / 1819 Columbia Road NW
Small plates that won’t break the bank, this Adams Morgan favorite fills up on
weekends so make a reservation. Locals characterize it as funky chic. This is on my
husband’s short list. It’s a nice long walk from the hotel or a short taxi ride.
Mintwood Place / 1813 Columbia Rd NW
A bit of farmhouse, a bit of French—the result is divine. Also in Adams Morgan and
right next door to Cashion’s.
Lebanese Taverna / 2641 Connecticut Ave NW
Yes, this is a chain but it’s a local chain and the food is authentic Lebanese. It’s less
than a block from the hotel. Especially fun for a group.
Amsterdam Falafelshop / 2425 18th St NW
Falafel on pita bread plus Middle Eastern salads. Quick, tasty, and inexpensive.
Himalayan Heritage Restaurant / 2305 18th St NW
Sweet Himalayan-lodge decor serves spicy Nepalese-Indian fare including tandoori &
delicious steamed dumplings.
