Audiology Students at the ASHA Convention

Due to the timing of the 2024 ASHA Convention and proximity to the end of the academic semester, this program is being postponed in 2024. It will return for the 2025 Convention in Washington, DC—which will celebrate ASHA’s 100th anniversary. Check out program details for Boston in 2023 and look for a webpage update in early 2025.
