This month Leading Steps Paediatric Clinic congratulates Queensland's Healthy Hearing program celebrating 10 years of service. Dr David Pincus was on the steering committee that established this initiative, with Pindara Hospital as the original trial site. This program has been wonderfully successful, testing over 500, 000 babies across Queensland. Of these babies over 1000 were found to have hearing loss and were able to access the early intervention needed to give them a stronger chance of avoiding future communication, health and learning problems.
