“...autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.”
- Edwin Way Teale (as quoted in the Quote Garden Web site)
This is the time of year when Division 13 affiliates have numerous opportunities to gather together to collaborate and discuss current topics of importance in the field of swallowing and swallowing disorders. We hope that you will be able to participate in both the thirteenth annual Dysphagia Research Society (DRS) meeting and the ASHA annual Convention.
The DRS meeting will truly be international not only in locale but in sponsorship. The meeting will be held in the world-class city of Montreal, Quebec and jointly sponsored with the Japanese Society for Dysphagia Rehabilitation. Division 13, in collaboration with the Yul Brennar Foundation, is again proud to sponsor two grants for first-time, first authors/presenters. Each grant is in the sum of $500 to support novel research. We also hope to see you at the ASHA Convention in Philadelphia at the many sessions in swallowing and swallowing disorders. Division 13 is sponsoring a Short Course entitled “Electrical Stimulation for Restoring Swallowing Function.” The speaker for the Short Course is Dr. Milos Popovic of the Rehabilitation Engineering Lab in Toronto. Division 13 affiliates will be able to attend this sponsored course at a discounted registration fee. To see a list of all Short Courses and information on discounts for affiliates, go to: http://www.asha.org/about/events/convention/program-courses/short_courses04.htm. We hope to see you at our annual business meeting, which will be held on Sat., Nov. 20, 1–2 p.m. Watch the Division Web page (http://www.asha.org/about/membership-certification/divs/div_13.htm) and the Convention Daily for location.
