UAD Co-Directors, Drs. Troche and Hegland, along with fellow SLHS alum Dr. Teresa Pitts, gave an hour-long seminar at the annual conference of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association.  The seminar covered the topic of Airway Protection, focusing on cough production, evaluation, and treatment.  With several hundred attendees, the seminar was a huge success and highlighted the outstanding basic and clinical science coming out of the UAD and our UF SLHS department.

Also, Dr. K. Hegland gave a presentation as part of an ASHA short-course entitled “Respiratory Function: Assessment and Treatment in Disease.” This invited course included a panel of experts, with SLHS Department Chair Dr. Christine Sapienza , UAD collaborators Dr. Paul Davenport, Dr. Jessica Huber, SLHS graduate Dr. Susan Baker Brehm, Dr. Jenneate Hoit (Univ. of Arizona), and  Linda Stachowiak (MD Anderson Cancer Center, Orlando, FL).
