The National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association (NSSLHA) at The College of Saint Rose, Albany, New York, helped raise money for the Albany Medical Center Craniofacial Surgical Team with a "Just Keep Smiling" event on November 18. The Disney-themed fundraiser included an Italian dinner, carnival games, raffles and a presentation from Albany Medical Center's speech pathologist and Jackie Klein, clinical director at Saint Rose.
Students Erin McDonald, NSSLHA president; Lee Whelihan, NSSLHA vice president; Kayla Kiernan, NSSLHA secretary; and Jordan Eisel, NSSLHA treasurer, led the event along with their faculty advisors Dr. Deirdre Muldoon and Dr. Dave DeBonis. The event raised more than $750 for three surgeries for children with cleft lip and/or palate.
