SLP Trivia Fun Welcomes Yvette Mccoy from Maryland

SLP Trivia Fun Welcomes Yvette Mccoy from Maryland

And we’re back with the second ever installment of SLP Trivia Fun. Episode number 2 can be listened to right HERE and, fair warning, it’s a real knee-slapper of a good time because we have one of my bestest friends ever on the show, Yvette Mccoy from Maryland. She has been an SLP in an outpatient setting for 23 years, and she specializes in swallowing, which is an aspect of the field that I know very VERY little about. Yvette is one smart cookie and I know you’re gonna learn a ton from her on this episode.

Swallow stuff and brain stuff!

The theme of this episode revolved around swallowing stuff and brain stuff. We chatted a bit about dysphagia and aphasia. I also challenged her with some random sports trivia because ya never know what you’re going to get with this podcast. Am I right?!

Do you know the name of the doctor who made huge discoveries in the Broca’s area of the brain?

I don’t know. Listen to this first episode and you’ll find out.

Do you know the name of the doctor who made huge discoveries in the Wernicke’s area of the brain?

I don’t know. Listen to this first episode and you’ll find out.

Grey’s Anatomy, anyone?

Are you a Grey’s Anatomy fan? Well, in this episode Yvette talked about how the creators of that show sometimes drop the ball, with regard to having SLPs represented on the show. And we daydreamed about the show that WE would make. Hollywood, here we come!

In closing . . .

Big thanks to Yvette for being the second ever SLP Trivia Fun contestant. She’s a real champion SLP and I’m lucky to be besties with her.
