ASHA Minority Student Leadership Program (MSLP) –
Two SLHS MA students, Carlos Arias and Diane Guerrero, were recently selected for ASHA’s Minority Student Leadership Program. This program is designed to enhance leadership skills for speech-language pathology and audiology students from historically under-represented racial and ethnic populations. Applicants for this program were asked to discuss career goals and past experiences in working with people with communication disorders from culturally- and linguistically-diverse (CLD) populations. SLHS has a strong focus in training all students to work with clients from CLD populations. We are proud that two of our students have been selected for this highly competitive program.
As part of this program, Carlos and Diane will attend the ASHA National Convention this November. They will have the opportunity to learn more about how ASHA works, strengthen leadership skills, and interact with leaders in the field– including researchers, university faculty from across the world, ASHA leaders, clinicians, and MSLP alumni.
We are honored to have Carlos and Diane represent SLHS and SDSU!
Congratulations, Carlos and Diane!
