In this episode, Simon talk with his friend Yasmin Beydoun about her path to becoming a speech-language pathologist. Their conversation takes them everywhere from meeting at a nerd camp for entrepreneurial neuroscience students in Halifax to her clinical training with linguistic minorities. We also learn about the complexities around swallowing, how standardized tests can keep out marginalized communities from becoming healthcare professionals, and the politics of school speech assessments.
