She has recently been involved in the ACHIEVE research study at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, which studies the effects of hearing aid intervention on the progression of dementia. Dr. Sturdivant believes in the importance of delaying and preventing hearing loss in order to maintain the integrity of auditory-neural pathways vital to overall health and wellness over a lifetime.
With a history of piano and vocal performance, Grace targeted her doctoral research in “Music City” Nashville to practices in the music industry.

With specialized products for music, OtoPro provides a means to full music enjoyment that will keep your ears keenly tuned for many years to come.
