About Kathleen Ward
I am an audiologist teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses. I supervise clinicians at the Loyola Clinical Centers working on interprofessional teams assessing adults and children as well as serving clients for hearing care services. Students and I often travel to provide services at area head start programs, senior centers, and schools. I serve as a club moderator for the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) and for the American Sign Language (ASL) club. On a personal note I enjoy sports and am a Loyola Greyhounds Super Fan.
