Coughing and Choking: Age-Related Complications with Swallowing
Presented by Laura Wolford, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Instructor, Speech-Language Pathology Program, Midwestern University College of Health Sciences

Our ability to communicate and consume food is critical to quality of life. An estimated 20 percent of individuals over the age of 50 experience difficulty swallowing to some degree. Dr. Wolford will explain what happens to our swallowing muscles as we age, why people cough when they eat, and the difference between normal age-related changes and potential health problems. She will also discuss ways to make swallowing easier and safer for older adults.
