Association Recognizes News Outlets and Members for Outstanding Coverage and Outreach
“The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has chosen 11 honorees for its 2019 Media Awards—seven media outlets and four ASHA member “Media Outreach Champions.” ASHA will recognize them at its Convention this November in Orlando, Florida.
“We congratulate our award winners for their good work and the important role they have played helping us realize ASHA’s vision of ‘making effective communication, a human right, accessible and achievable for all,'” ASHA President Shari Robertson, PhD, CCC-SLP, said.
“Because of their efforts, the public is better educated about the ability to communicate—how to nurture and protect it; how and where to get help for it; and, of course, how the work of ASHA members can be the critical positive difference when problems arise. We are pleased to honor them.”
