The speech-language pathology program at Midwestern University College of Health Sciences in Glendale recently received a grant from the Parkinson Voice Project to help patients with Parkinson’s disease regain their voice through treatments at the university’s Therapy Institute.

The 2021 SPEAK Out & LOUD Crowd Grant provides training and resources to allow speech-language pathology faculty and students the opportunity to help Parkinson’s patients improve their speech, voice, cognition and swallowing via a four-week therapeutic program. Upon completion of the four-week program, participants can continue practicing their skills in a LOUD Crowd therapeutic group.

For more information about the program, contact the speech-language pathology clinic at the Midwestern University Therapy Institute at 623-806-7741.

The Parkinson Voice Project’s mission is to preserve the speech and communication of individuals with Parkinson’s and related neurological disorders through continuous speech therapy, follow-up support, research, education and community awareness.
