Presenter:

George Barnes MS CCC-SLP has developed an expertise in dysphagia management with a focus on diagnostics and clinical decision making in the medically complex population. George yearns to make education useful, research clinical-focused, and quality care accessible. He co-founded a mobile FEES service to expand access to high-quality dysphagia services. George strives to go beyond the swallow in dysphagia management by looking at the whole patient which is evident in his research on a pneumonia risk calculator. His speaking engagements aim to bridge research and patient care, which have included talks with several universities as well as a variety of online platforms. George has a track record of paying his knowledge forward to other professionals through his courses, his blog (Beyond the Scope), graduate school-level education, clinical fellowship and student supervision and through several mentorship programs and professional committee participation.
