Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Resources and Webinars
Being an effective medical SLP is so much more than clinical data. First and foremost, we must consider the human. As educators and clinicians who serve diverse populations, we are dedicated to constantly growing, teaching, and learning how to better serve and support all individuals of any race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexuality, ability, socioeconomic status, religion/spirituality, age, and any intersection not listed.
