Audiologist with an Implant

Bill Raymond became the first cochlear implant recipient in Australia to also earn a degree as an audiologist. He graduated from the University of Queensland. Raymond was diagnosed at 15 months of age and received the implant when he was 13. A local Rotary Club helped pay for the surgery. Raymond is now helping children who are adjusting to their own cochlear implants.
