The annual Clinical Aphasiology Conference (CAC) provides a forum for clinicians and researchers engaged in the study and clinical management of persons with acquired neurologic language disorders to present their recent research and engage in extensive discussions with colleagues. To develop an informal atmosphere conducive to the free exchange of ideas, CAC attendance is limited to approximately 120 people. The 2019 Conference Chairperson is Mary Boyle and the Program Chairperson is Stacie Raymer.
