This past school year for the Nebraska Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) has been another exciting one. NSSLHA is a club for speech language pathology and audiology students at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln. NSSLHA’s numbers have grown again, and currently we have 104 total members, 40 active members, and 32 key members.
The University of Nebraska at Omaha National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (UNO NSSLHA) Chapter is a student organization that helps students gain a greater awareness of the issues that affect the field of speech-language pathology and audiology. UNO's NSSLHA offers numerous opportunities for members to participate in volunteer projects, programs at meetings, guest speakers, and various other educational and service-based programs.

Jacob Landis received a cochlear implant at the age of ten. He has devoted much to helping those with hearing loss. Three years ago, Jacob decided to combine his passion for baseball, cycling, and helping the hearing impaired by riding to all thirty U.S. Major League baseball stadiums to raise money for the Gift of Hearing. This money is used to offset the cost of an implant for those who cannot afford the procedure.

Please join us for the NSLHA Region IV Friday Afternoon Club on April 24th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Cunninghams Journal. The address is 15 West 23rd Street, Kearney, NE 68847. If weather permits we will meet in the courtyard. Otherwise, I will have tables inside. Please bring your SLP and AUD friends, NSLHA members or not. This is a great opportunity to meet other NSLHA members and to take some time to unwind at the end of the week. Cunningham's has great drinks and a full menu, so feel free to drop in for just a drink or to stay and eat something too. You will be responsible for your own check. Please let me know if you have questions, and I hope to see you all there!

A majority of the proceeds benefit HearU, which is the Nebraska children's hearing aid bank. A silent auction will also be held.
The purpose of this research is to investigate factors influencing the validity and reliability of the data collected for productivity standards within the speech-language pathology field, through use of the Adult component of ASHA’s NOMS. Information including general knowledge of the system, training, and opinion regarding areas of concern and strength, as reported by practicing clinicians, as well as insight into recommendations for improved reporting, is sought.
Participants: Participants must be speech-language pathologists who use or have used NOMS to report patient ratings and outcomes. SLP aides or assistants are not eligible to participate in this survey.
Contact Michelle Friesz by email at email@example.com or by phone at (208) 447-9390 to participate in the survey.
