Research and Creative Activity

GAIL RICHARD
Gail Richard, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, took office as the 2017 president of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) on Jan. 1. In this role, Richard works to advance the objectives of ASHA and its 186,000 members and affiliates who are audiologists; speech-language pathologists; speech, language, and hearing scientists; audiology and speech-language pathology support personnel; and students.

Richard has been on the faculty at Eastern in communication disorders and sciences for 35 years, including 14 years as department chair. She retired from the teaching faculty in May 2014 to serve as director of a new initiative—the Autism Center on the EIU campus. In her current work with the Autism Center, she conducts evaluations, consultations and educational workshops.

“I am honored, humbled, and excited to serve ASHA members as their president in 2017," said Richard. “It is a wonderful opportunity to encourage greater awareness of the impact communication disorders have on the lives of those served by ASHA members as well as foster progress in cross-disciplinary collaboration."
