Over the moon for European Swallow Awareness Day
European Swallowing Awareness Day took place this week to highlight how speech and language therapists support people with eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties, a condition known as Dysphagia. Clinicians across the country took to the streets to spread the word, and share a piece of cake or two. The message was bolstered by a tweet from astronaut Major Tim Peake CMG and the European Space Agency #swallowaware2017. The Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists thanked the team for taking the message into orbit, and said they were "over the moon"!
