About Kathleen Ward

In my position as Audiology Coordinator for the LCC I work closely with area Head Start Programs, Preschools, Schools, and Senior Centers to provide outreach hearing services to the community.  The LCC can transport equipment for hearing screenings, hearing aid education, and aural rehabilitation support to  schools and centers around both the Belvedere Square Clinic and the Columbia Graduate Center.

I am currently one of two National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) club moderators for Loyola University. We have membership for both our undergraduate students and our graduate school students.
