Journal ArticleDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

Hearing is an important sense that many of us take for granted. Unless we are affected by hearing loss, we often do not think twice about listening to our favorite tunes or a neighbor’s conversation. Many things—from a viral infection to turning an MP3 player up too high—can contribute to hearing loss. Audiologist Brian Fligor works with hearing-impaired children and musicians to determine possible causes and treatments. His work blends together his passions for music, healthcare, science, and math.

Scientists do all sorts of things but this one helps people hear. This gentleman wears many hats but all of them are related to the science of hearing. As a biomedical engineer his job helps people from all walks of life. Reading about this and his advice to students one is inspired by his hopes and future advice.
