NJSHA is excited to offer a wonderful way to honor colleagues, friends and family through our new Friends of NJSHA tribute program. The new initiative was requested by NJSHA members who wanted to pay tribute to the memory of a beloved colleague. Members and non-members alike may make a donation to NJSHA to celebrate the special people in our lives, their accomplishments and contributions, as well the many special occasions we want to remember and share. Personal acknowledgement cards will be sent to those honored or the family of those remembered.
Donations may also be offered to support the work and mission of our association, as we strive to be the premiere speech-language and hearing resource to New Jersey based professionals, students and members of the community.
