Past Presentations

Rehab Med Live: Connecting... Video chat has exploded over the past few months as people explore new ways to stay connected. The rush to adopt new technologies makes it all the more important to make sure we're not leaving anybody behind, especially those who experience barriers—from children to the elderly —in setting up and using these tools. Join a panel from our Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders to hear about the work being done to make these tools accessible for everybody, as well as some tips and resources for helping your loved ones overcome these barriers.
