Jacqueline Laures-Gore, Ph.D. is the guest for Aphasia Access’ Distinguished Speaker Series. Her topic is the intersection of religion, spirituality, health and aphasia. This exclusive event for Aphasia Access members takes place Wednesday, November 8, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. ET.
Around 15 minutes into the event, the floor opens for a dynamic and engaging discussion. It’s an opportunity for you to actively participate, ask questions and freely share your thoughts. Aphasia Access touts this isn’t your typical lecture but a chance to connect with fellow scholars and inquisitive minds to create “a truly intimate gathering.”
“This topic is important for speech-language pathologists to consider while working with persons with aphasia,” Laures-Gore said. “These are all very large topics separately and together are quite complex. I’ll attempt to synthesize these various areas so that aphasiologists can better understand their clinical and research implications.”
In regards to her speaking engagement for this series she explains, “I have not done this series before. The series includes Aphasia Access members who have received awards recently. I received the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Fellow award in 2022. That award led to this invitation.”
As this event is reserved for Apahsia Access members, ensure your membership is active to gain access to this experience.
“I feel very honored to be invited to speak with my Aphasia Access community through this venue. I am excited about engaging with this community and having an engaging conversation,” Laures-Gore said.
What is Aphasia Access?
Aphasia Access is a support organization for those dealing with aphasia treatment and information.
“We empower busy healthcare professionals faced with the difficult task of giving or getting reliable information from someone struggling to communicate. We help speech-language pathologists deliver reimbursable, person-centered aphasia treatment. We assist leaders hosting aphasia group programs. We support university professors teaching the next generation, and students pursuing career paths to serve people with communication disorders including aphasia. We are committed to anyone on the front lines of aphasia care as well as to breaking down the communication access barriers that are all too prevalent in our health care delivery systems.”
