The NSSLHA Undergraduate Diversity Equity & Inclusion Committee has been working hard this semester to raise awareness regarding the racial disparities that exist in our field. The DEI Committee is hosting a guest speaker event on 4/20 from 6-7pm via zoom. The guest speaker is Marilouise Elizabeth, a BIPOC medical SLP who works in adult acute care based in Houston, TX. She currently runs a blog for prospective SLPs (https://www.metheslp.com) and is an advocate for progressing diversity in our CS&D professionals. Marilouise will share her experiences in the first half of the event, and we will open it up to questions toward the end.
The DEI Committee is extending an invitation to anyone who would like to come to the event! Below is the zoom link for the event, and the google form to register.
