We welcome Christina Del Toro PhD, CCC-SLP to our STARS meeting on Thursday, June 9 at 1:30pm. Dr. Del Toro will be sharing information about her latest proposed aphasia research project. Our group will be working with Dr. Del Toro and her research assistants as they work to learn more about how to best help those with aphasia, a condition that can affect your ability to speak, write, and understand language, both verbal and written and which typically occurs suddenly after stroke or head injury.

Following this information session, we will break into our usual survivor and caregiver support groups.  All are welcome to attend.  Let us know by Monday, June 6 if you need childcare during the presentation and/or support groups.  Contact the church office at 630-355-1483 if you have questions or need additional information.

Schedule:

  • 1:15 pm – Gather in the Parlor
  • 1:30 pm – Chapel service
  • 2:00 pm – Support groups are available for caregivers and survivors in Room 101

Come for both or either.
