Published on: 28 Jun 2021

Although the pandemic made in-person Convocation ceremonies impossible once again this year, the event represents an important milestone in a graduate’s journey as the recognition of years of hard work. It also provides an opportune time to reflect on that journey, as Dr. Haruka Saito, the lone 2021 graduate from the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders (SCSD), did in taking some time to answer a few of our questions.

What was the focus of your PhD, and what led you to that topic?

Dear colleagues,

As you know, McGill University is committed to helping contain the propagation of COVID-19 and fully supports the Quebec government’s decision to close all schools and universities for the two-week period ending March 29. We all must do our part to “flatten the curve” so that health services are not overwhelmed by the resulting patient load.

Students from the McGill University Faculty of Medicine’s School of Communication Sciences and Disorders (SCSD) have once again been busy organizing a series of events for spring 2019. Working under the guidance of Dr. Nicole Li-Jessen, Assistant Professor at the SCSD, two groups of students, each comprised of five final year Master’s students in Speech-Language Pathology, have developed events geared towards raising public awareness of often-overlooked issues related to swallowing and voice.
