Congratulations to Dr. La’Toria Jallah and Dr. Theresa Dawson, whose 2021 ASHA Convention Poster presentation titled "Cultural Perspectives of Stroke Education in Guyana and the United States: A Student Collaboration" has been designated as a Meritorious Poster Submission.
The Meritorious Poster Submission recognition is for proposals judged by the Convention Program Committee to show extraordinary, exceptional and innovative work. Each Topic Committee has the option of recommending one or two top-rated posters for this special distinction. Of the 1,253 total poster submissions in 2021, only 60 were selected for meritorious recognition. Dr. Jallah and Dr. Dawson’s poster was among the posters that received the highest ratings from Topic Committee reviewers across both submission categories of professional education and research.
Clinical associate professor Chrystal Ingram Williams had an article published in ASHA Leader Live. She has been invited to join Kappa Delta Pi, an education honor society at Northcentral University, where she is in her second year of a doctoral program.
