ASHA Elections Part 2: Dr. Kathy Coufal, Presidential Attitudes, Feeding Standards, and /F/ Words

March 23, 2019

Matt, Michael, and Michelle discuss the news and views of the week.  This week, President Donald Trump mocked Joe Biden’s dysfluent moment by stating he had a low IQ, he did this previously to Seth Myers in 2011.  Did cooking food lead us to being able to state our favorite F and V words?  Lastly, a start date for a Dysphagia Standard is coming in less than 2 months, what does this mean for us?  Lastly, Dr. Kathy Coufal has spent her career advocating and teaching leaders in our field.  Now she is running for VP of Planning and sat down with Matt to talk about her vision for ASHA.
