It is with great pleasure that we announce that Dr. Jean Neil-Strunjas, a tenured professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, has been named the new 2019-20 CHHS Faculty Fellow for Research and Creative Activities. Among the many research responsibilities and supervisory tasks that she will assume, much of her role will focus on the review and approval of both internal and external faculty grants.
She is a certified speech-language pathologist, researcher, and teacher. Her academic and administrative experience spans the University of Cincinnati and Armstrong State University of the University System of Georgia (now Georgia Southern University) to her former appointment as Department Head at Western Kentucky University.
Dr. Neils-Strunjas conducts clinical research with teams across the US in speech-language pathology, rehabilitation, psychology, and neurology. She is also one of the founding members of the Center for Applied Science in Health & Aging (CASHA). Her goal is to provide graduate students with the knowledge, clinical experience, and research background to impact those with communication disorders.
Please help us congratulate and warmly welcome her into this new position!
