"I am humbled and excited to take on the role of CEO at the Oberkotter Foundation. I am deeply committed to building upon the Foundation's rich legacy and contributing to its continued success in redefining hearing loss for the next generation," said Dr. Caraway. "I look forward to working closely with the Trustees and the Oberkotter Foundation and Hearing First teams to accelerate a new chapter of growth for the organization, one with science and innovation at the forefront of everything we do to improve audiological, listening and spoken language, and literacy outcomes for children who are deaf or hard of hearing."

Bruce Rosenfield, trustee and former executive director, expressed confidence in the Foundation's trajectory under Dr. Caraway's guidance. "Dr. Caraway's visionary leadership makes her the ideal leader to guide the Oberkotter Foundation through its next phase of growth and impact. The Trustees and I are inspired by the promising future for the Foundation to pave the way for a more inclusive and supportive future for children with hearing loss to learn to listen and talk through listening and spoken language."
