About the Training

This webinar will focus on the importance of newborn hearing screening, the 1-3-6 algorithm, and the screening, diagnosis, and intervention process as relates to childhood hearing loss.


Dr. Morra was born and raised in New Jersey.  He is a graduate of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and completed his pediatric residency at the duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware.  After practicing pediatrics in New Jersey, he and his wife, Amy, a speech pathologist, moved to Mascoutah, IL in 2002.  Dr. Morra worked at Shriners Hospital for Children in St. Louis, and in 2005 established a private practice of his own, Right from the Start Pediatrics, which has two office locations.  Dr. Morra has some special interests in pediatrics, but the one closest to his heart is newborn hearing screening, as he has three sons, two of whom were diagnosed as deaf shortly after birth.  In 2015, Dr. Morra assumed the volunteer role of Illinois AAP Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Chapter Champion.  Part of his obligation to the role is the education of health care providers regarding the importance of newborn hearing screening and its follow-up according to the "1-3-6 algorithm."
