      The proposed objectives for Healthy People 2020 "Hearing and Other Sensory or Communication Disorders" (Ear, Nose, Throat - Voice, Speech, and Language) will be released for public comment on October 30. The EHDI objective has been retained, although modified slightly. The verbiage of the new objective aligns better with the language of JCIH 2007 Position Paper. Comments will be accepted through December 31, 2009.
