139: Stories from the Front Lines of COVID, Part One. Learning to Talk and Chew Again After COVID, with Speech Language Pathologist Allison Frederick We Gotta Talk: News, Issues, and Beauty for Women

    • Society & Culture

This is the first episode of a three-part special series of We Gotta Talk, where I'm interviewing front-line medical workers about the Delta variant of COVID.

20-, 30-, and 40-somethings having to learn how to talk again after experiencing a stroke from COVID... Yep, that's happening.

Today's guest, Allison Frederick, is an inpatient speech-language pathologist who is a regular contributor to the ARC Seminars Blog. She teaches continuing education courses for other clinicians and look to empower other clinicians to treat intimidating conditions. She's currently working in the Southern New Jersey area with a range of patients, including many people suffering from what's being termed "post-COVID" issues.

In this episode I talk with Allison about the range of patients and symptoms she's treating; how this variant differs from last year's dominant U.S. strain; what types of issues she helps patients recover from, and more.

It's a sobering look into how Delta is impacting people right now.

Check out a recent piece Allison just wrote for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association HERE. Reach out to Allison at allison@arcseminars.net.
