Our director of audiology, and Sound SHC partner, Dr. Melissa Wilson Beer, recently contributed to the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) Leader Blog with the article “Simple Ways To Boost Health Care Access for People With Communication Disorders.”
In the article Dr. Wilson Beer shares her thoughts on the current state of healthcare, as it relates to the communication sciences, and how she works to assist those in the community receive care, even as a small private practice. .
“The daily grind makes it easy to forget what once motivated you to enter our professions,” shares Dr. Beer. ““Helping people” is exhausting enough without thinking of the thousands of others who aren’t getting the help they, too, need.
