Grant Gives Voice to Parkinson’s Patients

Pacific’s Psychology & Comprehensive Health Clinic and the School of Communication Sciences & Disorders are looking for participants to take part in a program to help individuals with Parkinson’s improve their speech and swallowing. The two-part program starts with individual speech therapy followed by weekly group therapy.

Pacific is among 149 recipients worldwide taking part in the 2019 SPEAK OUT! & LOUD Crowd grant program funded by the Parkinson Voice Project. The one-year grant provides free training for speech-language pathologists and graduate students as well as speech therapy supplies.

If you are interested in participating in the program or have questions please contact, CSD Clinical Assistant Professor Melissa Fryer at
