In 2020, Dr. Strong attended the TQR 11th Annual Conference at Nova Southeastern University with colleagues Dr. Jackie Hinckley of Nova Southeastern University and Dr. Erin Bush of the University of Wyoming. During the conference together they attended a Photovoice workshop lead by Dr. Laura Lorenz. Photovoice is a technique that allows research participants to express their lived experience through photos. Drs. Strong, Hinckley, and Bush all immediately saw the application of photo voice to people with acquired communication disorders such as aphasia, traumatic brain injury, and dysarthria due to Parkinson’s disease. After returning to their respective campuses, they each took the Talking with Pictures: Photovoice class with Dr. Lorenz. And then began a collaborative research project using Photovoice to explore life with an acquired communication disorder. This project is currently underway. Stay tuned for more information as we get our cameras ready for this Photovoice project.
A current project in partnership with Dr. Jackie Hinckley of Nova Southeastern University and Dr. Erin Bush of the University of Wyoming.
