Parkinson Voice Project’s first Lead with Intent Symposium to feature Laura Bush

Parkinson Voice Project has announced that former First Lady Laura Bush will open its first ever “Lead with Intent Symposium” on Wednesday, Jun. 20. The symposium will be held at Parkinson Voice Project’s headquarters in Richardson.

The ‘Lead with Intent Symposium’ will bring nearly 100 speech-language pathologists from across the United States together in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for three and a half days of education and training on Parkinson’s, business, and leadership.

The participating speech-language pathologists represent hospital rehabilitation clinics, university speech therapy clinics, and nonprofit Parkinson’s organizations who are being awarded $650,000 in training, therapy supplies, and funding from Parkinson Voice Project’s National SPEAK OUT!® and LOUD Crowd® Grant Program. The entities are committed to replicating Parkinson Voice Project’s unique two-part speech therapy program that combines individual and group speech therapy to help people living with Parkinson’s across America restore their speaking abilities.
