The University of Memphis School of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Alumni Chapter will honor Dr. Kim S. Schairer as its 2011 Outstanding Alumna at the group’s annual Alumni Reception on Thursday, Feb. 24, at the Memphis Hilton. The reception will begin at 5:30 p.m.  It will follow the first day’s session of the Mid-South Conference on Communicative Disorders.

Schairer received her bachelor of science in speech-language pathology and audiology from Western Michigan University in 1994. She earned a master of arts in 1996 and Ph.D. in 2000, both in audiology and from the U of M. 

Schairer completed a three-year post-doctoral fellowship at Boys Town National Research Hospital in Omaha, Neb., and continued as a research associate there for another two years. She has been an assistant professor in the Department of Communicative Disorders at the University of Wisconsin since 2005. Her research interests include measures of variability in the processing of sound in listeners with normal hearing and those with hearing loss, and the effects of age and traumatic brain injury on hearing. She has published in the areas of otoacoustic emissions, middle ear reflectance, and psychoacoustics. In addition, Schairer has served on committees for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and the Acoustical Society of America.

This event is open to School of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology alumni and friends at no charge. Appetizers and a cash bar will be offered.

The deadline for reservations is Feb. 22.  To make reservations, or for more information, call the Alumni Association at 901-678-1333.
