Speech-language pathology graduate student, Cameron McCurty '06, '10G, was selected to participate in the Minority Student Leadership Program (MSLP) at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention in Philadelphia on November 16 - 21, 2010.
MSLP is a leadership development program established for undergraduate seniors, graduate-level students, audiology students who are enrolled in communication sciences and disorders programs, and PhD students who are pursuing a research doctoral degree. MSLP recruits and retains racial/ethnic minorities that have been historically under-represented in the professions of audiology and speech-language pathology.
Thirty students were chosen to participate. MSLP applications were reviewed by a panel of ASHA members and rated on their essay, resume and a letter of support. Applicants must belong to The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association to participate in the program.
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association is a professional, scientific, and credentialing association for 140,000 members and affiliates who are speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists in the United States and internationally. ASHA’s mission is to empower and support speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists by advocating on behalf of persons with communication and related disorders, advancing communication science and promoting effective human communication.
