Informative, Interactive and Inclusive Workshops
Racial disparity, racism, discrimination, and bias have been at the forefront of many conversations in the last 10 years, these conversations have also reached the Speech-Language Patholisgist community. This workshop "Exploring Race and Class Inequalities in Speech Therapy Services" is hosted by the team at Andalusia Speech Therapy.
