Lisa Park, AuD, has been named the first division chief of the Children’s Cochlear Implant Center (CCIC).
Originally from St. Louis, she received her Bachelor of Science in Speech and Language Pathology from Fontbonne University, her Master’s Degree in Speech and Hearing Science from Washington University in St. Louis, and her Doctorate of Audiology from The University of Florida. She spent four years working as an audiologist at Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech, seeing the impact deafness can have on learning, development, and social relationships.
Park joined the CCIC at UNC-Chapel Hill, formerly known as CCCDP/CASTLE, as a pediatric cochlear implant audiologist in 2006. She was promoted to faculty in 2017 and has been working on clinical trials and research projects to expand indications for cochlear implants in children who are D/deaf or hard of hearing.
Park said she feels fortunate to be able to watch children grow as they work toward their hearing goals and to contribute to work that enables more children to benefit from remarkable hearing technology for the last 20 years.
