Description: This webinar was broadcast live on July 14, 2015. It consisted of a panel of patients and caregivers who have been impacted by dysphagia. The panel was moderated by a medical speech-language pathologist with expertise in swallowing disorders. Each panelist briefly shared their experience with dysphagia. The webinar was then opened to the audience to ask both general questions to the entire panel and specific questions directed towards an individual panelist.
Laura Michael, NFOSD Board Member and owner of Dysphagia Solutions, has prepared a wonderful, informational video series titled, “Making Every Bite Count,” which demonstrates how to prepare modified meals.
