Board of Directors

The board of directors for the Aphasia Center of California includes both experts in the field of aphasia and those personally affected by aphasia. The Aphasia Center is committed to giving all program participants a “voice” in program planning, and service on the board is one way that we ensure ongoing feedback and input from those we serve.
