Wear Red Day

Community Outreach Event
Date
Feb 2, 2018
Time
11:00AM - 1:00PM

On National Wear Red® Day, wearing red helps create awareness around the leading cause of death in women, one that claims the lives of 500,000 each year – heart disease. Spreading awareness and education around this silent killer will help us improve that number. Since National Wear Red Day started in 2003, nearly 300 fewer women die from heart disease each day.

Community members: stop by the hospital between 11:30 am - 1:00 pm to get your blood pressure checked for free and join us for a group photo at 12:15 pm. We hope to see you there!

Speech Sounds Visualized App released by Pullman Regional Hospital

Jan 16, 2018

A new digital app, designed for English pronunciation training, is now available for purchase in the iTunes App store.  Developed by Speech Language Pathologist, Keri Jones, through the Center for Learning & Innovation at Pullman Regional Hospital, Speech Sounds Visualized is a first-of-its-kind web-based tool which shows the user how the mouth, tongue and throat make sounds for clear pronunciation.  Designed for both adults and children, the customizable app helps English Language learners pronounce standard American English sounds more clearly and is beneficial for accent reduction.    

“Combining the learning styles of hearing and seeing is proving to be such an effective way to teach both adults and children,” said Jones, a certified SLP with more than 18 years of experience. “An accent is something to be proud of; it’s a representation of who you are and where you come from.  However, if you feel your accent impedes your interpersonal communication, this app can help those who want to be better understood.”

“This is our mission at Pullman Regional Hospital’s Center for Learning & Innovation—to support innovative breakthroughs which change the way we provide and receive healthcare,” said Becky Highfill, Director of the Center. “This app is such an exciting solution and the culmination of great minds and a big goal.”  

Speech Sounds Visualized is the only app using a combination of x-ray images, audio recordings, and written instructions, to guide the user in forming the standard American English sounds. The innovative use of x-ray technology to capture the movements of articulation was overseen by a Radiation Health Physicist.

The app currently includes images and instruction for more than 40 sounds in the English language, along with word lists for additional practice, and advanced recording capability for immediate user feedback.

Speech Sounds Visualized can be found in the iTunes App store for $9.99.  An android version is under development. To learn more, visit the Speech Sounds Visualized web page.
