MSHA Town Hall: Empowerment Series

I had the opportunity to attend all three Town Hall Meetings and each one of them was outstanding.
Kudos to the Executive Board and committee members who organized these meetings, as well as to
each presenter. Thank you for providing the MSHA membership with a positive alternative, due to the
loss of the onsite spring Convention, to earn CEUs!

There were four universities who received the 2019-2020 MSHA Gold Status Award 🥇. In order to receive this award, NSSLHA chapters must work closely with the MSHA Graduate Student Representative and be actively involved in the MSHA community. Last semester we recognized two of our awardees (University of Missouri and Maryville University).

This semester we want to start off by recognizing Truman University (CoDA). CONGRATULATIONS! Beyond proud of each one of you. Keep up the good work!! 🙌🏼👍🏼

Take a look at what Truman University NSSLHA Chapter President, Alyssa Kuene and her chapter members have to say:

CoDA, Truman State University’s NSSLHA chapter, has offered its members a deeper involvement in the field of Communication Disorders outside of their classes. Over the years, guest speakers have provided the members with great information on different CMDS-related careers, some of which the members did not previously know about. Members have also been able to bond through the activities CoDA hosts during the school year, while also helping the Kirksville community.

Some of these activities include teaching high school students about the importance of hearing protection, raising awareness for Developmental Language Disorder on DLD Day, and making scrunchies to sell and using the profits to sponsor families in the Kirksville community for Thanksgiving. We get to showcase these fun and educational experiences we have on our chapter’s social media. This has also given us the opportunity to collaborate with and support other speech and hearing related groups and create a widespread network.

CoDA is so proud of the students we send to the MSHA research conference every year, as they get to show off all of the hard work they put into their research projects. We love working with MSHA on social media posts and updating them regularly on what our chapter is up to each month. Having MSHA’s constant support means a lot to us and we look forward to continuing to collaborate with MSHA in the future.
