Distinguished Speaker Series: Leora Cherney
Thursday, May 27 at 4 PM ET

What makes the speaker series even more remarkable is that they are not a traditional lecture. They are intimate conversations that will start with their thoughts on observations on the day’s topics and turn into an open and free-flowing conversation. To make the conversation that much more impactful for everyone in attendance, each speaker has agreed to do a second session on their given day if interest is strong.

The 2020-21 Distinguished Speakers Series is your chance to connect, up close and personal, with speakers that you may have had to travel and pay a conference registration to see from afar. All it takes is a current Aphasia Access membership.
