In-person conferences are happening again! CDS faculty and students were well represented at the American Academy of Audiology 2022 convention in St. Louis, MO this past weekend, with lots of fun and science and a Professional Poster Award to Dr. Sheppard!
In closing out Black History Month, we recognize one of our own in conjunction with the UB School of Management , Major Virginia Bailey. Major Bailey is the first Doctor of Audiology/MBA dual-degree program. Currently she is the hearing program manager and chief of audiology for the U.S. Army in Alaska.
Drs. Nichol Castro, Thea Knowles, and Chris Heffner received 2021 New Investigators Research Grants from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation. This prestigious award is given to promising young investigators for research in speech-language pathology and audiology. Each year, the Foundation award about 10 young investigators, and this year the foundation awarded three to CDS faculty members. This is an exceptional achievement for our young faculty. We congratulate them on their success
The University of Buffalo's Speech-Language & Hearing Clinic is the training facility for students who are majoring in Speech Pathology and Audiology in the Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences.
