      Who are the Lauer family?
      Philanthropists?
      I read something on the internet about Matt Lauer?

      They are philanthropists. No relation to Matt Lauer that I am aware of.

      I am glad to hear that more research centers are being open up. Hopefully we are getting closer to a cure in the near future i.e within 10 years.

      Really hoping things will gain momentum in this field. I know it's unhealthy for my current mental state to revolve around 'when will they find a cure' but ugh

      Good luck with that. Based on your writings it would be a miracle if you made it into med school. Maybe being a truck driver is more your thing... no offense...

      oh HAHA hilarious.....:arghh:

      you would think a person with tinnitus since the 90s would sympathize and feel his fairly new tinnitus brethren on this, i mean come on:banghead:, but what ever i guess :cry: :(

      But like i was saying man i wonder if their hearts are truly in it. i mean yeah they wanna help but would their cause be greater if they themselves were afflicted with it. i simply ask this based off all the ENTS i met.

      Please be kind to update us on anything interesting being discussed during this seminar. I'm unfortunately overseas, else I would have attended myself. Is there anything new? Or has it been mainly about the good old story of "managing techniques for Tinnitus"?

      A lot of it was about managing tinnitus.

      However, there pretty good information this time around that I had not known. Apparently interventions such as acupuncture, physical therapy, TMJ correct, rTMS, and other techniques do legitimately help a lot of people. I actually met a few people who successfully treated their tinnitus there, although most people there still had it of course.

      I'm going to try a few other avenues that I was skeptical about just to see if there's any change on my part.
