Speech therapy featured at Lunch & Learn

In the October 20 installment of Coffey Health System’s Lunch & Learn series, Speech-language Pathologist Jessica Jones will demonstrate the benefits of speech therapy and services covered at Coffey Health System. The noon presentation takes place in Coffey County Hospital’s Allen Woods 2 conference room.

People who have experienced an acquired brain injury or stroke frequently encounter changes in their thinking skills, ability to use and understand language, and ability to speak. Treatments provided at Coffey Health System also affect people with developmental disorders, physical abnormalities (i.e., cleft palate, microcephaly, etc.), Parkinson’s disease, stroke, dementia, head/neck cancer, and more.

“When most people think about spending time with friends and family, plans usually consist of eating, drinking, and communicating,” Jones said. “When these areas have been affected, people lose the ability to participate in things they love.”

Attendance and lunch are free. Seating is limited, so register today by calling Virginia DuBuke at (620) 364-2121 Ext. 4174. Evening callers may leave a voice-mail including their name, telephone, and the number of people wanting to attend. Reservations are also taken online at www.coffeyhealth.org.

The Lunch & Learn series is a community service of Coffey Health System.
