The Department of Speech and Hearing Science is once again very happy to be touching base with our alumni. While the message that we are off to “another good year” is by now often uttered in this newsletter, the past year was particularly productive, with the strongest evidence being our graduates. We are again pleased to see another outstanding class enter their clinical fellowship year. Kudos to our grads!
Our global initiatives continue with collaborative work taking place with researchers and clinicians in Nepal, Australia, Ireland, China, England and Sweden. Sylvia Campbell and Kari Comer organized trips to Nepal by a group of students this past summer. Be sure to check out their blog and the article in this edition of Hearsay.
Our faculty and students have been recognized for their accomplishments during the past year. I hope you enjoy reading about the accomplishments of our faculty and students.
This past year, one of our graduates was the beneficiary of a Lambert award. This award enabled Sara Pool to complete her graduate work and now she is a clinical fellow at the VA Hospital in Seattle. We are inspired by Sara’s story and have initiated an appeal to contribute to our student scholarship award. This will be based on need and will hopefully result in other stories like Sara’s. Please consider contributing to the department as part of your end-of-the-year giving. Your gifts to the department are appreciated.
We are going to be at ASHA in Philadelphia in full force. We have a number of papers and presentations and are again going to host an alumni gathering at The Fieldhouse on Friday, 4:30-6:00. If you are going to ASHA, be sure to plan to attend the event. More information and registration is listed below.
