Modeling The Effects Of Fentanyl And Narcan On The Opioid Epidemic In Allegheny County Using Mathematics, Lindsay Moskal, Lauren Sines, Rachael Neilan Ph.D. May 2020

Modeling The Effects Of Fentanyl And Narcan On The Opioid Epidemic In Allegheny County Using Mathematics, Lindsay Moskal, Lauren Sines, Rachael Neilan Ph.D.

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

Starting in the 1990s, physicians across the United States have increasingly prescribed opioid pain relievers, which has given rise to the current opioid epidemic. As a result, there has been a drastic increase in the number of overdose fatalities. In 2017, the number of opioid overdose deaths peaked and the U.S. declared the crisis as a public health emergency. One state that has contributed significantly to this epidemic is Pennsylvania, which ranks first for the greatest number of overdose deaths and third for the highest death rate. In fact, Allegheny County has witnessed an overdose death rate that is ...

Current Beliefs Of Speech-Language Pathologists Regarding Lateralization Errors, Magdalena Difazio, Megan Overby May 2020

Current Beliefs Of Speech-Language Pathologists Regarding Lateralization Errors, Magdalena Difazio, Megan Overby

Graduate Student Research Symposium

Lateralization errors (LEs) are defined as persistent speech sound errors in which sibilant sounds are distorted due to air flow exiting the mouth laterally, rather than centrally, as result of insufficient lingual pressure against the alveolar ridge and/or teeth. Prevalence of LEs is unknown, and there are no published data on contemporary assessment and treatment challenges. We developed six research questions addressing treatment and prevalence of LEs. Additional information about speech-language pathologists’ (SLPs’) perceptions and practices concerning LEs would facilitate understanding of current practice. Licensed SLPs (N=214, 98.12% female, Xage = 30-39 years) participated in a mixed-methods ...
