Tennessee’s Department of Health Newborn Hearing Screening (NHS) Program is pleased to announce a Middle Tennessee Regional Task Force meeting in Nashville that includes the Upper Cumberland and South Central districts. This meeting is for anyone who provides services to newborns, infants, and young children who are suspected to have or have been identified with hearing loss as well as their parents.  The success of this meeting depends on participation from a variety of individuals including parents, hospital screeners, audiologists, early intervention staff, medical providers, speech-language pathologists, early head start staff, midwives, family support providers, deaf educators, deaf-blind specialists, university personnel, and home visitors. Meetings have already been conducted in Memphis, Jackson, Chattanooga, and Knoxville with great success!

Objectives for this interactive meeting include:
*Learning current national and state initiatives for EHDI/NHS
*Teaming with parents and other providers to identify strengths and areas of need related to EHDI/NHS services in your region
*Collaborating with the state’s NHS program to develop and implement change strategies for screening, follow-up, intervention, and family support
