A recent article in the Washington Post on February 25, 2018, titled “Swallowing problems are a big killer, but the treatment can be horrible,” had many, MANY inaccuracies about our profession, and in fact did not even name our profession!

In this episode, we discuss Karen Sheffler’s excellent rebuttal blog post on swallowstudy.com and also discuss an SLP Action Plan, and how we can grow from this article to advocate and educate our colleagues.
