Meet Kaitlin Brooks! Licensed and Certified Speech Language Pathologist

Kaitlin Brooks, Assistant Professor, is a licensed and certified speech language pathologist with over 15 years of experience working with adults and caregivers of individuals with communication and swallowing disorders. Throughout her clinical and academic career, she has worked collaboratively with healthcare professionals and experienced the positive impact that a team approach can have on the lives of our clients. This experience, combined with her previous scholarly publications, has inspired several current research projects involving interprofessional collaboration.  Kaitlin is currently working with first responders both nationally and internationally to educate the public on aphasia, a language disorder that commonly occurs after a stroke. A stroke can also result in impaired swallowing, or dysphagia. She is currently working with a Molloy SONHS team to develop a badge to provide nurses with additional knowledge and skills in the area of dysphagia management.  Kaitlin continues to work with multidisciplinary teams of healthcare professionals at both Mercy University and Molloy University.
