Calling all audiologists and speech-language pathologists: tap an opportunity to help high school and college students discover communication sciences and disorders (CSD) professions during Health Professions Week, Nov. 5–9.
Established in 2016, the interprofessional event of 20 health care associations—including ASHA—seeks to increase the profile of and interest in the health professions.
The week features a series of virtual events that provide information about health-related education programs and careers. The events are free for all attendees, including students, counselors, parents and advisors.
Keynoters include LeDerick Horne—an advocate and motivational speaker labeled as neurologically impaired as a child—who will speak about “Beyond Classification.” Christine Grant, an academic resilience strategist, will present “Navigating Your Journey on the Academic Sea.” Other events during the week include an advocacy panel discussion, a Twitter chat, virtual fairs for high school and college students, and a financial aid workshop.
To learn more about the event and how to engage students, contact Melanie Johnson at mjohnson@asha.org.
