Among those attending the symposium were (l-r) Danny Jones, Ted Baxter, Angela Mandas, adjunct faculty, Heather Kaaria, Page Jones, Candace Vickers, adjunct faculty, and Judy Montgomery, Ph.D., professor.


The Second Annual Survivors Symposium was presented on Saturday, April 14 by the graduate students in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). Three community members who experienced a stroke/ brain injury presented to graduate students from Chapman, Cal State University, Fullerton and Biola College. These speakers shared their survivor journey from the initial stroke through years of rehabilitation to their return to daily participation in the work they love.

A high point of the day was the story of Page Jones, a race car driver injured in a serious crash on the track, and the son of champion driver, Parnelli Jones.  The symposium was an outstanding learning experience for future speech language pathologists who will be working with persons after stroke and brain injury.
