We are grateful to have the logo of the Hong Kong Institute of Audiologists Limited (HKIA) designed by Dr CHANG Wai Tsz, a specialist in otorhinolaryngology, as well as a talented artist and Chinese calligrapher. The logo depicts the two Chinese characters for “listen” or “hear” (聽) and “ability” (力) which, when combined together, also mean “audiology” in Chinese. There is a drawing of the spiral structure of cochlea, vestibule, and 3 semicircular canals embedded. The cochlea contributes mainly to one’s hearing function, and the 3 semicircular canals contribute to one’s balance function. This logo symbolises that audiologists, the registrants of the HKIA, are serving the community through prevention, identification, assessment, and rehabilitation of hearing, auditory function, balance, and other related systems.
