I want to thank the Kentucky Speech-Language-Hearing-Association for inviting me to present this week.  I commend convention co-chairs Margaret Cain-Miracle, Rebecca S. Goss and their staff for a wonderfully organized and executed conference.  I had the opportunity to attend a session on improving aphasia testing given by Dr. Robert Marshall.  We have all benefited from Dr. Marshall's significant contributions to aphasia rehabilitation.  We added several new members to the Aphasia Solutions Network during the convention.
