StutterTalk is a weekly internet program by three men who stutter and are also speech-language pathologists (or in school to become one). They discuss a wide variety of topics that are important to the stuttering community. You can check out each week's topic at their website www.stuttertalk.com and subscribe to the podcast. A few weeks ago the program featured Dr. Dennis Drayna who is researching the genetic components of stuttering for the National Institute of Health. Dr. Drayna presented his research at the National Stuttering Association's convention in Atlanta, Georgia this past June.

The NC Triad chapter of the National Stuttering Association held a holiday social at Ham's Restaurant in place of its December meeting. The social was attended by 2 chapter leaders, 1 person who stutters, 1 speech-language pathologist, and her spouse. Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday January 8th from 7-9pm in the Claxton Room on the first floor of Elliott University Center on the campus of UNCG. We are considering holding a second meeting later in January at a coffee shop for those who find it difficult to make our regular meeting. Please contact us if you are interested in this possibility and let us know what day/time would work best with your schedule.
