The impact that you can have by connecting with your state senator, building a relationship, and offering support is tremendous. Please plan to attend and share your ideas, concerns and recommendation with state senators on how to enhance speech, language and hearing services for Nebraskans.
It’s an opportunity to build relationships with state senators, while educating and informing them about the speech-language-hearing field in our state. This is increasingly important, as the healthcare environment continues to change, and the ability to deliver speech-language-hearing services becomes increasingly challenging.
