NHCA 2021 Virtual Conference has ended
Welcome to the 2021 NHCA Virtual Conference Schedule, below you will find the schedule listed with 3 types of education sessions, Live Platform, Pre-recorded Platform and E-Poster Sessions. They will all be delivered a little differently so please take a little time to read the descriptions and understand how the conference will be laid out.

  • Live Platforms: NHCA is offering 7 live sessions with interactive Q&A and chat features over the two days of the live conference. If you are not able to watch these sessions live they will be recorded and playback will be available until March 19, 2021
  • ON DEMAND Pre-Recorded Platforms: There will be 28 pre-recorded sessions that will be released on the first day of the conference, these will be available to watch at your leisure and will be available until March 19, 2021. PLEASE NOTE: They are available longer than the 1-5 pm time on the schedule but we are not able to program them in like that!
  • ON DEMAND E-Poster Sessions: There will be 8 E-Poster sessions available to watch, each session is 15 minutes long and worth a quarter of a credit, in order to receive a full hour you will need to watch 4 poster sessions all the way through and complete and evaluation. These will be available as pre-recordings and will be available from the start of the conference until March 19, 2021
This means you have the opportunity for up to 19.0 CE credits at this years conference! (See ASHA AND AAA Brand Blocks below)

Arthur Colombier

École de Technologie Supérieure
From the beginning of his higher education, Arthur joined an engineering school, INSA Lyon (National Institute of Applied Sciences of Lyon) with the idea of entering the Mechanical Engineering department. Indeed, the latter offers its final year students the possibility of doing a double degree with the Master Acoustics of Lyon. Arthur's long-standing interest in the world of acoustics was completely confirmed. An internship at the INRS (National Institute for Research and Safety) in Nancy in a laboratory of acoustics, where he worked on predicting the masked thresholds of hearing-paired listeners, allowed him to validate his mechanical engineering and acoustics master degrees. He thus acquired a taste for the world of research, and in particular for research on the hearing protection of workers. Continuing his career with a PhD seems to him to be the logical next step. Arthur thus came into contact with Jérémie Voix, professor at the École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS) in Montreal, who quickly became his thesis director. The subject of his doctoral thesis is the modelization of instrumented earmuffs for dosimetry and fit-testing applications. It will focus mainly on prototyping and modeling aspects.
