The Opening General Session kicks off the ASHA Convention! This popular event brings everyone together to celebrate the speech, language, and hearing professional community and celebrates our 2022 theme, “Reframe Your Thinking: Resilience Reinvented.” You'll be welcomed by ASHA President Judy Rudebusch Rich, who will share her insights about the state of the discipline. Then, Convention Co-Chairs Mark DeRuiter and Edie Hapner will preview what’s in store for you this year—including special sessions, new events, and other highlights. Finally, we will welcome a special guest as our keynote speaker.
This fun and inspiring event jumpstarts the ASHA Convention and will get you enthused and excited about the next 3 days!
