Honors Student Invited to Participate at American Speech-Language and Hearing Association Convention
October 6, 2017
Honors student Madison Burnett will attend the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association Convention in Los Angeles on November 9-12, 2017. The ASHA Convention is the premier annual professional education event for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists.
While at the convention, Burnett will present a poster version of her Honors thesis. She was also invited to participate in the Promoting the Next Generation of Researchers (PROGENY) program. PROGENY recognizes and encourages promising undergraduate researchers who are interested in pursuing doctorate degrees. As a program participant, Burnett will have the opportunity to connect with experienced university researchers to discuss similar interests and future plans. Burnett’s travel is funded in part by an Honors Undergraduate Research Grant that she received in spring 2017.
Burnett will graduate with a speech-language pathology degree in spring 2018.
