May Health Today Features Memory
The May Health Today Program will feature the presentation “If I Could Only Remember Better” by Amy Nash, M.S., CCC-SLP. The session will be held at 12:20 p.m. on Thursday, May 31, in the Conference Rooms at Jefferson Community Health & Life.
May is Better Hearing and Speech Month. Speech Therapist Amy Nash, M.S., CCC-SLP, provides speech therapy services at Jefferson Community Health & Life Sports Medicine and Rehab Services. Speech-language pathologists work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Amy’s program will feature something we are all interested in – and may benefit from: cognitive-communication disorders. These disorders can include problems with planning, problem solving and remembering. Problems may happen as a result of a stroke, traumatic brain injury or dementia, but may also be congenital. Techniques used by speech language pathologists may help all of us as we work on our memory skills.
