Chicago welcomes 15,000 ASHA delegates

The 2013 American Speech-Language-Hearing Association convention is the largest ASHA convention on record. Over 14,000 delegates pre-registered (and over 2,500 of these are students). It is tipped that by the end of the convention 15,000 delegates will be registered. There are 2,387 accepted presentations. ASHA has over 166,000 members. Chicago is happy to have so many visitors - and has welcome signs hanging along the Magnificent Mile.
