ASHFoundation researcher aims to minimize dysphagia in patients with dementia

Dr. Pulia is featured in an article by ASHA Wire, a publication of American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. From the article:

“The ASHFoundation New Investigator award has been absolutely crucial in providing me with the support I needed to launch my own independent line of research. Focused on patients with post-stroke dysphagia, my ASHFoundation project was a small clinical trial designed to examine the effects of tongue-strengthening, as compared to usual care. As we conducted this study, we found that a subset of our participants had cognitive impairment—but were still able to complete the intervention.”
