Research Symposium at ASHA Convention
The Research Symposium aims to bring together clinicians and researchers at ASHA's Annual Convention, in order to discuss current research that has important implications for the study of communication processes and disorders. Each year's symposium focuses on a specific research theme. Research is presented by invited speakers who are experts in their fields.
The Research Mentoring-Pair Travel Award (RMPTA) is offered in conjunction with this program, in order to provide a research mentoring experience to students who show promise as emerging scientists. This award provides ASHA Convention registration fee waivers to mentor-protégé pairs.
The Symposium is open to all attendees of the ASHA annual Convention who are interested in current research.
The Symposium consists of several talks related to a central research issue with opportunities for discussion between clinicians, junior investigators and senior investigators. In addition, RMPTA recipients attend a luncheon and dinner.
The 2014 Symposium topic is to be announced.
How to Attend
The Symposium is scheduled for November 22, 2014, at the ASHA Convention in Orlando, Florida. Any Convention attendee may attend and no ticket is required for this event. Attendees are welcome for the entire day or individual Symposium sessions.
