He has collaborated with Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and Harvard Medical School to conduct research that proved to help improve hearing ability in noisy environments. Dr. Shannon provides training and professional services to numerous schools and is a member of the New York Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (NYEDI) program. He also gives seminars to the community and has a monthly radio show, “Listen Up, Rockland,” on www.WRCR.com the first Monday of every month at 9:30am.
