Speech language pathologist and ECU alumna to talk about living, working in Alaska

GREENVILLE, N.C.  (Nov. 6, 2012)  —  Catherine Geneaux, an ECU alumna and speech language pathologist, will talk Nov. 9 about living and working in Alaska —where clinicians fly bush planes to see patients and many communities do not have speech-language services.

The presentation will be held at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9 in Room 3405 of the Health Sciences Building. Light refreshments will be served.

Geneaux will talk about life as a distance education master’s student and how speech language pathology is conducted in the state of Alaska.

Geneaux participated in a unique joint program between ECU and University of Alaska –Anchorage. ECU provides online classes for students in the master’s degree in communication sciences and disorders, and UAA provides their clinic. The partnership helps produce speech-language pathologists for the state of Alaska, and students graduate with a degree from ECU.

ECU offers the only speech language program in Alaska. For more information, visit http://www.ecu.edu/csd.
