The Opening General Session kicks off the ASHA Convention! This popular event brings everyone together to celebrate the speech, language, and hearing professional community and celebrates our 2022 theme, “Reframe Your Thinking: Resilience Reinvented.” You'll be welcomed by ASHA President Judy Rudebusch Rich, who will update everyone about the Association’s activities and accomplishments and share her insights on the theme. Then, Convention Co-Chairs Mark DeRuiter and Edie Hapner will offer highlights of what’s in store for you in New Orleans this year to get you excited about the next 3 days. Finally, we will welcome special guest Jonathan Lee Iverson as keynote speaker to share his story about how reframing your thinking and resilience can help you tap into your strengths to reinvent your path.
