CSD Undergraduate Students Take Capitol Hill!

In October seniors in Steinhardt’s Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders Samantha Louis, Nicole Candiotti, and Gretchen Go participated in ASHA’s Student Day on the Hill in Washington D.C.  There, they advocated for the speech and hearing sciences in regards to many different issues including the Medicare therapy cap, financial aid for graduate students, and much more.

All students in attendance personally visited the offices of their local district congress representatives, state senators, and representatives to voice their thoughts and concerns. ASHA’s Student Day on the Hill was a wonderful reminder that students, clinicians, and educators should continuously advocate for legislation that will ultimately benefit the field of CSD and the many populations served.
