CSD hosting fourth annual Aphasia Awareness Night

Graduate students in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) speech-language pathology (SLP) program will host their fourth annual Aphasia Awareness Night from 3-5 p.m., Tuesday, July 19 at the Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex (5015 E. 29th St. North).

The event is geared toward health professions students, but anyone (especially within psychology, counseling and social work) is welcome to attend.

Come learn about working with patients who have aphasia. The event will feature a question and answer session with clients who have acquired aphasia and their caregivers. They will offer insight on the most beneficial techniques and support when working with various healthcare providers. The goal of the event is to foster a multidisciplinary approach to benefit these patients.

All attendants should enter through Entrance N located on the south side of the building (look for the awning). All attendants will then move through various stations throughout the event.
