Diversity Champion

I received a Diversity Champion award at the 2009 ASHA Convention in New Orleans and was featured on a Wall of Fame display in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Centre throughout the Convention.

The Diversity Champion award is “to recognize ASHA and NSSLHA members who have worked to advance multicultural infusion in our professions and ASHA, served as an advocate or championed the cause of multicultural issues, demonstrated respect and value for differing backgrounds and points of view, and/or have highlighted the impact of culture and/or language on speech-language pathology, audiology, or speech-language or hearing science”
