Giselle CarnabyDr. Giselle Carnaby, Associate Professor in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Community Health, was recently elected a Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

Fellowship is one of the highest forms of recognition given by ASHA of an individual’s accomplishments, and is public declaration of outstanding professional achievements in the discipline of communication sciences and disorders. The nominee must truly stand out among one’s peers by making contributions that are significant. Moreover, the fellow must be nominated by three ASHA members, two of which must be prior fellows.

According to ASHA, thousands of their members fulfill their professional responsibilities competently, yet only a small percentage have, by virtue of the quality and amount of their contributions, distinguished themselves sufficiently to warrant recognition as a fellow.

Dr. Carnaby will be formally recognized with a presentation at an Awards Ceremony on Friday, November 16, 2012, at the ASHA Convention in Atlanta, GA.
