AuD can't be called "Doctor" in Iowa!

The Iowa Code specifically prohibits audiologists without Ph.D. degrees from 
using the title, "Doctor." You can easily find this section of the Iowa law 
on the Internet. Use your web browser to find:

http://www2.legis.state.ia.us/Indices/AllIndices.html

After you reach this site, select the second item, "Code 1995 and merged 
Supplement."

Then insert the word "Doctor" in the search engine and select the very first 
item the search brings.

So, of what value is it to spend $500 or $750 for something you can't tell 
anyone you have it? I would suspect that most states, probably all of them, 
have similar prohibitions.
