This fundraiser is organized with help from the UNH chapter of the National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association (NSSLHA). The mission of the NSSLHA is to benefit its members by continually improving its support, promotion, and advocacy of the highest quality preparation of professionals in audiology, speech-language pathology, and speech and hearing sciences. The UNH chapter is a pre-professional organization that brings students together to provide community service related to the field, to fundraise for causes relevant to the organization, and provides peer-mentoring experiences outside of the classroom.
Want to end the evening with some frozen yogurt? We’re also hosting a benefit at Orange Leaf Portsmouth that night.
Thank you to the Flatbread Company and the NSSLHA-UNH Chapter and for their generous support!+4:00 pmBenefit Night @ Flatbread Company Portsmouth
