The purpose of our poster presentation is to educate Truman State University's community on the field of Communication Disorders and the services provided. Our hope is to increase interprofessional awareness in order to allow for the campus and young professionals to have a broader view of our role in the healthcare system. With the large scope of our field, we want to inform our audience that CMDS is a core undergraduate degree supporting Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. Interdisciplinary careers are continuing to increase, therefore the sooner young professionals in our target audience realize the interconnected web of our professions, the easier it will be to collaborate as a professional team to better benefit our future clientele. Examples of how we plan to raise awareness include providing an information table in multiple locations, hosting an open house in the Truman Speech and Hearing Clinic, and creating flyers to distribute.
