The Speech-Language Pathology (S-LP) Program at Midwestern University College of Health Sciences in Glendale recently received a grant from the Parkinson Voice Project to help patients with Parkinson’s disease regain their voice through treatments at the University’s Therapy Institute.
The 2023 SPEAK Out® & LOUD Crowd® Grant provides training and resources to allow S-LP faculty and students the opportunity to help Parkinson’s 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.
For more information about the program, contact the Speech-Language Pathology Clinic at the Midwestern University Therapy Institute at (623) 806-7741.
The Parkinson Voice Project’s mission is to preserve the speech and communication of individuals with Parkinson’s and related neurological disorders through continuous speech therapy, follow-up support, research, education, and community awareness.
