Paul Kuttner Pioneer Award

Odilia MacDonald, Audiologist, was presented with the prestigious Paul Kuttner Pioneer Award by the Canadian Academy of Audiology in September 2016. This award is presented to a pioneer in audiology who has “boldy gone where no one has before” and been the “first” to embark on a new program or procedure which has impacted audiology service delivery in Canada.

Odilia was recognized for all her work in making the Canadian Academy of Audiology (CAA) a reality. The CAA is a professional association dedicated to enhancing the role of audiology through advocacy, education and research.

Odilia was also instrumental in the development of Sounds+, an Atlantic organization for Audiologists. Sounds+ wants every Canadian to take their hearing health seriously and make an annual visit to the Audiologist a part of their health and wellness routine. Prevention and early intervention, when required, is part of healthy hearing.
