We are exploring ways to reach out and serve our diverse communities (e.g., East Asia, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands). We would like to promote mentorship this year. This is our plan. We will create a monthly mentorship post on Facebook and Instagram first week of the month and would like to invite you to participate with us. We will ask a question or post a common issue raised by API members and encourage everyone to chime in and offer their thoughts.

The article, entitled “Speech Therapy in Cambodia: From the Ground Up!” describes the origins and work of our two organizations, noting: “Speech Therapy Cambodia (STC) … and OIC Cambodia arrived in Phnom Penh at the same time and with remarkable similar missions: to train Cambodians to support people with communication and swallowing difficulties and to create a comprehensive university program to educate Cambodian-born SLPs [Speech-Language Pathologists].”…As the CSHA article points out: “By training Cambodian dysphagia clinicians to a high level of competency and by demonstrating the importance of this life-saving work, we [at STC] can help patients now while working toward the ultimate goal of a degree program for Cambodian SLPs.” Congratulations to STC!
Thank you so much for attending the API meeting at ASHA. Our organization strives to serve and advocate for quality speech, language and hearing service delivery for Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities. We are here to hear you and support your work. Our next tasks are to reach out to our members to provide support, collaborate with colleagues and increase publicity and visibility. Our next annual meeting will be held in San Diego on 11/19/2020.
