Brielle Stark and Manaswita Dutta (PhD student) made their way to the 49th Clinical Aphasiology Conference, hosted in lovely Whitefish, Montana. Manaswita was a NIDCD fellow, meaning that she took part in several career development opportunities during the course of the conference. Her abstract (see below), which was for a roundtable discussion, was one of the highest rated abstracts at the conference.
