Three international Stanford undergrads start a 6M company to “help the world understand”

Stanford University prides itself on its international diversity, touting that today's undergraduates hail from 70 countries. So a friend-group that included a computer science major from China, an AI-focused management science and engineering (MSE) major from Russia, and a business-oriented MSE major from Venezuela isn't an anomaly. The friends did the normal things Stanford students do with their free time, like fountain hopping, cheering at football games, and hiking the trail around the Stanford Dish radio telescope.

Management Roles for Speech-Language Pathologists in Health Care

Put a group of health care-based speech-language pathologists in a room, and you’ll have a hard time finding one who serves solely in an administrative role (supervisor, manager, or director). According to ASHA’s year-end membership counts, in 2007 only 10.7% of ASHA-certified SLPs reported an administrative role as their primary employment function. When you subtract the 0.4% who chair an educational or research program, we’re left with 10.3% who work in an administrative role—and we don’t know how many of those are in health care.
