If you or a member of your family have undergone treatment for a head and neck cancer, stroke or other neurological condition, or a traumatic head or neck injury, you’ll want to learn more about the swallowing condition known as dysphagia.

Learn from Saint Anne’s Hospital speech-language pathologists Jill Valadao and Kristi Pickering about the mechanics of normal swallowing, the causes and risk factors for dysphagia, and the diagnostic procedures and treatment options that are available.

This free program is open to the general public and is part of Saint Anne’s Hospital Rehabilitation Services’ ongoing community education series.

This program will be presented in the Nannery Conference Room in Clemence Hall, opposite Saint Anne's Hospital Medical Office Building.  Free parking is available opposite Clemence Hall in the medical office building lot, with access from Osborn Street

To reserve your seat, please pre-register by calling Saint Anne’s Hospital Rehabilitation Services, 508-646-9470.
