October 14, 2020 – We had the great pleasure of catching up with audiologist and advisor to CMV Canada, Marie Pigeon. She gave insights into an audiologist’s perspective on CMV, Ontario’s screening programs, and the beautiful city of Ottawa (where we will be meeting next summer for the CMV Public Health & Policy Conference!).
Marie provides support in the development and implementation of program protocols, training, and continuous quality improvement for the Ontario Infant Hearing Program. She is proud to be a part of the clinical group that worked to both conceptualize and operationalize Risk Factor screening for permanent hearing loss, which includes CMV, in Ontario. She also provides clinical care in the Audiology Department at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).
