CSDRG Logemann Travel Award

Dr. Logemann was a pioneer in research related to dysphagia. In 1996 she founded the Communication Sciences and Disorders Clinical Trials Research Group (CSDRG). The goal of CSDRG is to advance the scientifically-based assessment and treatment of communication and swallowing disorders. This award honors her career and memory by seeking applications from students who are conducting research to further the evidence-base of the profession. 

This annual award will provide one student with a $500 travel stipend to attend the upcoming Dysphagia Research Society's (DRS) annual meeting. In order to be eligible for this award, the student should:

1) have submitted and had accepted for presentation either a paper or poster,

2) be the presenter and first author on the submission,

3) submit a one-page single-spaced essay addressing the domains of value of attending DRS and how their work honors Dr. Logemann (see below) and

4) in honoring Dr. Logemann and her research the students work should focus on evidence-based practice related to the assessment or treatment of individuals with dysphagia.
