NSSLHA had a great time seeing members and their families! Several faculty members provided tours, and graduate students and lab managers gave tours of the Infant Speech Lab, the L4 Lab, and the Aphasia Research Lab. Thanks to everyone who attended!
NSSLHA Board members, led by Caitlin Lentz (president) and Alisa Wang (social chair), organized a tour and lunch event for NSSLHA members and their families to socialize, meet faculty members, and see a little of the labs and clinic. Parents and grandparents spent time in the Voice Research Lab with Dr. Robin Samlan, learning about current vocal tract research and sharing singing technique. Parents and undergraduates toured the clinic areas and learned about the types of clients treated in the Grunewald-Blitz Clinic and the Clinic for Adult Communication with Jennifer Casteix. Dr. Jim Dean discussed current audiological trends. Department Head Dr. Pelagie Beeson spoke with families and shared information about SLHS.
Families enjoyed a lovely lunch of sandwiches, chips, and cookies donated by Paradise Bakery. To top of the weekend, the UA Wildcats beat the Utah Utes, 35 to 24.
SLHS is proud to have such active student groups.
