Researchers with the Defense Health Agency’s Hearing Center of Excellence are connecting directly with Warfighters to better understand the hearing and balance challenges they experience in an operational environment.

“We’re making a concerted effort to ‘get out of the clinic’ and connect and interact with operational military units in their mission environments,” explained Dr. Jeremy Nelson, HCE Research Branch Chief.

The team’s first venture outside the clinic focused on pilot training and flight operation activities at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph on December 7. There they met with staff and pilots from the 560th Flying Training Squadron, 559th MDS Flight Medicine, Aerospace Physiology, and Aircrew Flight Equipment.
