On Friday, April 26, the 2nd annual Callier Cares Luncheon will honor Geraldine “Tincy” Miller with the 2013 Ruth and Ken Altshuler Callier Care Award. This award is presented annually to an individual or group of individuals who has contributed significantly to advancing the care of patients with communication disorders. We are also pleased to honor Dr. Harvey Dillon, Director of Research from the National Acoustic Laboratories of Australia, with the 2013 Callier Prize. The Callier Prize recognizes individuals whose leadership and research contributions have promoted scientific advances and significant developments in the diagnosis and treatment of communication disorders. Proceeds from the event will benefit patients in need through the Callier Care Fund.Ruth and Ken Altshuler created the fund to help children and adults who would otherwise be unable to afford treatment to overcome speech, language and hearing disorders.
Callier Center for Communication Disorders at the University of Texas at Dallas improves the ability of more than 4,000 patients with speech, language and hearing disorders to connect with the world. At the Center’s heart is a time-honored commitment to our three-part mission: to provide outstanding, leading-edge clinical services, to conduct meaningful and innovative basic and applied research into new treatments and technologies, and to train the next generation of caring clinical providers. Our exemplary clinical care programs include autism spectrum disorder (now affecting 1 in 88 American children), audiology, speech-language pathology, cochlear implant and early child development. For half a century, the Callier Center has been honored to be able to transform lives because of the generosity of our donors.
