Students and National Student Speech Language Hearing Association chapters from every state will join together to petition Congress on behalf of audiology and speech-language pathology on April 21.
Two concurrent activities are scheduled: ASHA Student Hill Day and NSSLHA Virtual Advocacy Day.
Students from communication sciences and disorders programs located near Washington, D.C., will convene on Capitol Hill. The day will begin with a briefing on effective talking points and protocol when meeting with the representatives, and then participants will meet with their congressional representatives to advocate for issues ranging from student loan forgiveness to telepractice.
Students outside the D.C. area can also make a difference on April 21 through the NSSLHA Virtual Advocacy Day. Students from around the country are encouraged to log on to ASHA’s Take Action site to take part in this concentrated effort to make their voices heard on CSD-related issues. Participating in an advocacy activity counts toward a requirement for NSSLHA Chapter Honors.
To participate in the onsite Student Hill Day, contact Caroline Goncalves Jones, cgoncalvesjones@asha.org or 202-624-8198.
