A mission to the International Space Station lifting off March 21 from Kazakhstan will carry some uniquely meaningful cargo: a miniature replica of “The Annie,” the premier public award of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). The award is named after Annie Glenn, tireless advocate for people with communication disorders and spouse of the late John Glenn, one of America’s most famous astronauts. NASA astronaut Andrew Feustel is bringing the Annie replica onboard to celebrate the importance of communication and the work of audiologists and speech-language pathologists.
