ASHA Breakfast 

Each November the American Speech-Hearing Association hosts its national conference in various U.S. cities. The annual aphasia community breakfast occurs Thursday morning before ASHA’s opening address. We invite you to kick off your ASHA experience by connecting with your peers in aphasia care. This aphasia community event is filled with lively small group discussions and networking. Make plans to join us at The ASHA Convention, November 19, 2020 at 7:30 a.m.
