National Student Speech-Language Hearing Association – UTHSC Chapter

The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is a pre-professional membership association, led by students, for those interested in the study of communication sciences and disorders.

National membership is available to undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral students enrolled full- or part-time in a communication sciences program or related major. To join the UTHSC local chapter, please complete the membership application. Our local chapter meets monthly. We plan and implement various outreach and service-oriented activities that support the disciplines of audiology and speech-language pathology and the patients we serve, including

  • Audiology Open House
  • ASP Career Fair
  • Celebrate Sound Walk
  • Hear Us Run 5K
  • Walk to Defeat ALS
  • Tennessee Hands & Voices Family Events

The UTHSC NSSHLA Chapter has several faculty advisors: Ms. Vickie Barnes, Ms. Teresa Vaughn, and
