Retired
Susan Glasgow retired from the Baltimore-based nonprofit Hearing and Speech Agency (HASA) at the end of 2016, after 30 years of service, including 22 years as executive director. During her career at HASA, Glasgow helped with efforts to pass Maryland’s newborn infant hearing screening legislation in 1999 to ensure all newborns are tested before leaving the hospital. She oversaw the establishment and growth of HASA’s listening and spoken-language program, speech-language services and sign-language interpreting services. Glasgow also secured a $25,000 Google grant and a pair of Google Glass glasses to support students with communication disabilities at HASA’s Gateway School. She lobbied for health insurance to provide hearing aids for children in Maryland and advocated for Medicaid to allow children to see community pediatric providers for audiology and speech-language services … Stephanie Stryker Morgenstern has retired after 40 years in speech-language pathology. She worked in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools and at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, and later opened a private practice in Miami Beach. Morgenstern also organized and started speech-language pathology units at many local hospitals and skilled nursing facilities, including Mount Sinai Medical Center, Miami Heart Institute and St. Francis Hospital. She wrote the book “Speech After Stroke: A Manual for the Speech Pathologist and the Family Member” (published in English and Spanish), as well as many articles. Morgenstern also collaborated with her sister, an illustrator and artist, to produce Speech Illustrated Cards, flash cards used widely by SLPs and families. After moving to Clermont, Florida, in 1998, she worked for 10 years as a part-time clinician in the Clermont Health and Rehabilitation Center.
