Please join us on December 8, 2022 at 7 pm ET for a very special Ask the Expert, a free online webinar putting people with aphasia in touch with experts in aphasia advocacy and aphasia-related fields, including neurology and speech-language pathology.


Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her speech-language pathologist, Dr. Fabiane Hirsch Kruse, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, will join NAA President Darlene Williamson, M.A., CCC-SLP, for a conversation about life with aphasia. Congresswoman Giffords personifies what is possible for individuals living with aphasia. Learn how her advocacy work complements the mission of the NAA, and hear a special message from the NAA’s founder Martha Taylor Sarno in this final Ask the Expert marking the NAA’s 35th anniversary.
