A Hearing Revolution
with Healthable Devices
Dr. Rachele Orsini, Au.D
(A Spring APCUG VTC Reprise)

Today’s technology is more advanced than ever before with artificial intelligence and sensors leading the way and changing lives in many areas including healthcare. Hearing technology has always been an effective and proven solution for individuals with hearing loss but what if we could do more with an ear worn device? At Starkey we are the first and only manufacturer with a life changing healthable device that incorporates Artificial Intelligence and Sensors that do more than just improve hearing.

We have started a hearing revolution with healthable devices that do more for us….they go beyond the traditional hearing aid. Did you ever think that your hearing device would track your physical movements, provide you with a daily brain engagement score, detect a fall and send alerts, answer to voice commands, translate 27 languages in real time and much, much more. This session will highlight who is Starkey and why you should rethink your hearing healthcare with a healthable.

Dr. Orsini has been an active member of the Audiology Community in Florida since 2004. She received her B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders from West Virginia University in 2000. She then moved to Florida where she attended the University of South Florida and received her Doctorate of Audiology degree in 2004.

Arlington Meeting Info & Maps       


The program planners for our First Wednesday PATACS meetings in Arlington are looking for topics that members would like to have explored or questions answered - this is your opportunity to have a say in subjects addressed at this meeting. This is a smaller meeting than the Fairfax meeting, and it allows for much more interaction between members than is possible in Fairfax. And there's the post-meeting Pizza and Salad SIG, the post-meeting social at a nearby restaurant - another value-added feature of your membership! Please send your suggestions to our meeting program planners at arlmtgpgm@patacs.org.

Carrington Event
The Carrington Event
Presented by Brian Slawski

In the summer of 1859, an especially powerful storm on the surface of the sun unleashed effects experienced across the span of the earth. The Carrington Event, as it’s now commonly known, not only transfixed public attention, but also elicited greater understanding of the relationship between the earth and the sun, and of the risks that solar storms can pose to electrical infrastructure. This eclectic talk discusses not just the Carrington Event itself, but also the physical phenomena involved, the historical and scientific context in which the event occurred, and the implications of the event for the present day.

Brian Slawski serves as Vice President and Programs Chair of the Burke Historical Society. In his day job, he’s worked as a utility patent examiner at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office since 2007. Before joining the Patent Office, he worked in Charlottesville as an engineer for a start-up developing a new vapor deposition process. He holds a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Virginia.

Routine Comuter Maintenance
Presented by Lorrin Garson

Computer Maintenance Is routine maintenance necessary? How often should it be done? Should backup be part of regular maintenance? What about software updates? Do you need antimalware software, and does it need recurring attention? How full is your disk drive and does that matter? Is your computer running hot and so what? What about those dust bunnies, ventilation and cable discipline? Do you need to lubricate the bearings in your hard drive? Should you replace your old computer if it still works?

Lorrin Garson had a long career in technical publishing of chemical information. His presentations to our computer groups are famous for their thorough research and clarity in explaining topics such as cryptography, encryption of personal data, cloud storage and the origins of personal computers.
