CanadianAudiologist.ca is pleased to welcome Dr. Kathy Pichora-Fuller as our new columnist. Her column “What’s new about getting older?” will delve into all aspects of ageing and hearing ranging from health policy developments to neurophysical research on the aging auditory brain.

It underscores the importance of distinguishing between measures to evaluate performance on various domains of cognition in healthy older adults versus measures to screen for dementia and emphasizes that correlation does not prove causation.
