Why join NSSLHA?


Hannah Martin COSD class of 2021

"I am so glad I joined NSSLHA as a junior, as it gave me the opportunity to connect with graduate students and instructors in my major. I learned strategies to help me succeed in my first year and beyond. I also had numerous questions answered by guest panels of speech-language pathologists. My interest in speech-language pathology has strengthened since becoming involved in the fun and creative events this club has to offer! "
