Joel Starner

Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall during neuro surgeries? Or maybe even scrub in on an awake craniotomy? My guest this week does exactly that, and is looking to teach SLPs how to integrate into their OR team as well!

In this episode of SYP, I have a conversation with Joel Starner, a neurodiagnostic SLP, who you may have been introduced to through his viral social media feature in the “A Day in The Life” series on Instagram. If you’re an SLP with a specific interest in all things neuro, you’re going to love this episode! Joel shares his background, his passion, his hopes for the future of this niche area of our field, and a *very* interesting case that
will have you feeling all the emotions.
