Nancy Young, MD Gives Prestigious Lecture at American Neurotology Society

May 29, 2019

Nancy M. Young, MD, Section Head of Otology and Neurotology at Lurie Children’s, recently gave the American Neurotology Society’s prestigious William F. House Memorial Lecture on predictors of language outcome in deaf children who receive a cochlear implant. Her research, funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, aims to develop customized behavioral therapies based upon brain structure and function in order to maximize language development in each child with cochlear implants. In 1991, Dr. Young established Lurie Children’s Cochlear Implant Program, which today is one the largest in the world dedicated to children. She is the Lillian S. Wells Professor of Pediatric Otolaryngology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and is a fellow of Knowles Hearing Center of Northwestern University.
