#9: Freedom

Megan Berg and Dr. Jeanette Benigas talk to Kristin, an SLP who runs a private practice in Pennsylvania. Kristin discusses her decision to drop the CCC and expresses frustration with the requirement of holding the CCC to be a member of ASHA. The episode also features Courtney, who works in the schools and has never paid for the CCC as an SLP. Courtney discusses the need for changes in graduate programs, tracks for school and medical SLPs, and the need for more people to enter the field. Brooke Richardson also joins the conversation and talks about discussions happening on Pumble regarding changes to Medicaid rules in North Carolina, encouraging others to get involved locally. Megan and Jeanette emphasize the importance of individuals taking action to create change.
