Congratulations to the entire NYU National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) chapter on receiving 2019 Gold Chapter Honors — the highest level of recognition awarded by National NSSLHA.
The NYU NSSLHA chapter demonstrated an outstanding effort to inspire, empower, and support students studying communicative sciences and disorders by organizing a range of impactful activities in the past academic year.
Among these events, NYU NSSLHA orchestrated a letter-writing campaign advocating for the Audiology Patient Choice Act, a piece of legislation that aims to expand individuals’ access to audiology services. The chapter also organized a variety of community outreach events to increase NYU’s awareness of the field, including hosting public webinar discussions on communication change for transgender or gender non-conforming individuals. Members also joined together for 5K race in honor of Better Speech and Hearing Month.
Students were also recognized for their commitment to fundraising throughout the year, supporting National NSSLHA’s efforts to provide scholarships to future speech-language pathologists in need of financial support.
The Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders is proud of NYU NSSLHA students. Click here to check out the chapter’s Facebook page and stay updated on future events and initiatives in the fall.
