New Member Spotlight: Bridget Xia, M.S., CCC-SLP

1. What sparked your interest in joining ANCDS?

I have had a longstanding interest in neurogenic communication disorders.  My clinical work as an SLP in a multidisciplinary neurorehabilitation clinic interested me in clinically informed rehabilitation research.  I currently work as a research coordinator and hope to connect with like-minded people and stay up to date on important topics in CSD research and practice.  Last year, I had an illuminating conversation with Therese O'Neil-Pirozzi, Sc.D., and expressed my interest in joining ANCDS.  Therese told me about the great work ANCDS has done and shared her experience of being a member.  I joined ANCDS immediately afterward!

2. What have you appreciated from the organization so far, and why?

I have greatly benefited from the high-quality resources offered by the organization, such as CEUs and recorded webinars.  I enjoy listening to the podcasts while running, which has allowed me to reflect on ways to improve communication between researchers and clinicians to translate research findings into clinical practice.  I also truly appreciate the work done by the various Writing Groups and have found their research and clinical recommendations insightful.

3. What do you hope to gain from membership?

I look forward to meeting and staying connected with researchers, clinicians, and students with shared interests in neurogenic communication disorders.  I do not doubt that I will benefit from the wonderful selection of CEU offerings and hope to attend the annual conference one day!
