The Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) Program at Midwestern University College of Health Sciences in Glendale recently received a grant from the Parkinson Voice Project to help patients with Parkinson disease regain their voice through treatments at the University’s Therapy Institute.
The 2021 SPEAK Out® & LOUD Crowd® Grant provides training and resources to allow SLP faculty and students the opportunity to help Parkinson patients improve their speech, voice, cognition, and swallowing via a four-week therapeutic program. Upon completion of the four-week program, participants can continue practicing their skills in a LOUD Crowd® therapeutic group.
