    Dear Speech-Language-Hearing Association, Colleagues and Professionals,

    Greetings! We currently serve as co-presidents of the Asian Pacific Islander Speech-Language-Hearing Caucus (APISLHC). We hope that you and your families are healthy and safe during this challenging time. We are writing to all Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology programs in the hopes of reaching current and future audiologists and speech-language pathologists who are interested in APISLHC. The mission of the APISLHC is to serve and represent those who share a common interest in providing quality speech, language, and hearing services for individuals with various communicative and swallowing disorders across diverse Asian Pacific Islander communities, including East Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Islands.

    It would be much appreciated if you could share this letter to help us reach out to speech-language-hearing professionals who are interested in serving API communities. We support not only API professionals but also students who major in audiology or speech-language pathology. We also work with ASHA to facilitate a variety of multicultural initiatives, such as the Minority Student Leadership Program (MSLP), collaborations with the Multicultural Issues Board (MIB) and with other Multicultural constituency groups (MCCGs), and convene an annual API member meeting at ASHA conventions. Please encourage your colleagues, students, and alumni to connect with us (listed below).
