Hannah (Orozco) Grassie, 2008 graduate of the ACU Communication Sciences and Disorders undergraduate program, has been treating patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) since 2012.  An advocate for the Parkinson’s disease community, Hannah is intentionally working to create a better understanding of PD for patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, as well as speech-language pathologists. Her passion for learning more about and for helping individuals with Parkinson’s led her to create The Parkinson’s Report,  “a space for updates, insights, and professional input on Parkinson’s disease.”  She has also worked closely with the Michael J. Fox Foundation during activities designed to provide education about PD.

We are proud of Hannah and the work she is doing in the field of speech-language pathology!
