About George Kweku Danful
George Kweku Danful I obtained a Bachelor of Education (B. Ed) in Special Education with a major in hearing impairment and minor in mathematics from the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) in 2012 and a Master of Science (MSc) in Audiology from the University of Ghana in 2018. I have worked as an Audiology Technician for over 8 years before furthering my education to pursue MSc Audiology to become a licensed audiologist. I have worked with other experienced audiologists to design hearing conservation programs (HCP) and annual hearing assessment for workers in the mining, oil and gas, and other workers exposed to excessive noise. Currently, I work as an audiologist and an assistant lecturer (part-time) at the Centre for Hearing and Speech Services (CHSS)-UEW, Ghana. I provide audiological services mostly to the elderly and some children. I also provide counselling services to people with hearing loss and their families. Some of my publications include â€˜Comparative study of the prevalence of hearing loss among hepatitis B virus infected patients and uninfected volunteers: A case studyâ€™ (available at http://ugspace.ug.edu.gh/handle/123456789/31194), â€˜Neonatal and infant hearing screening in Ghana-West Africaâ€™ (in Saudi Society of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Newsletter [SSSPAN], May 1, 2018, Vol. 1, Issue 2, Pages 15 â€“ 18), and â€˜Career decision survey on Audiologists and Speech-Language Therapists in Ghana, West Africa'. I have interest in age-related hearing loss, childhood hearing loss, hearing aids, cochlear implants, and occupational hearing loss. I looking for a PhD studentship.
