The Fifteenth Annual Meeting of the Dysphagia Research Society was held March 8–10 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. In attendance this year were individuals representing a variety of disciplines, including speech-language pathology, otolaryngology, and gastroenterology.
A special pre-conference session was held on March 7, entitled “Multidisciplinary Symposium on Instrumental Evaluation and Management of Dysphagia.” Presenters gave a day-long series of lectures focusing on the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to the challenges of evaluating and managing dysphagia.
The conference planning committee prepared excellent panel presentations, beginning with a discussion on “Neural Plasticity: New Frontiers in Dysphagia Rehabilitation.” During this first series of presentations, Joanne Robbins, Sterling C. Johnson, Ruth E. Martin, and Shaheen Hamdy presented on the exciting advances in neural imaging and their impact on the diagnosis and treatment of dysphagia.
