Taking a brain health approach to tinnitus

Research is executed for the betterment of the society and the people it serves. The TRI 2023 Annual Tinnitus Conference recognises that the goal of research and clinical services is to serve the people with lived experience of tinnitus. Whether it involves studies conducted to understand the mechanism of tinnitus generation or to improve clinical services, people with lived experience of tinnitus should be informed of the steps the professional community are currently taking to improve the quality of services available and moving towards a cure.

Tinnitus Research Initiative Foundation in collaboration with the Global Brain Health Institute, Trinity College Dublin cordially invite you to TRI 2023 – Taking a brain health approach to tinnitus – a public engagement event aimed at creating community among people with lived experience of tinnitus, local and global professionals in the tinnitus field. During this event, you will learn about the latest developments in tinnitus research and clinical practices. You will also interact with tinnitus patient organisations from around the globe who can provide support and guidelines to manage your tinnitus. You will also witness a sample of how we can build community for tinnitus through the arts.

Join us on Friday, June 9 between 14:00 to 17:30 at the Trinity Business School to find your tinnitus community.
