The University of Washington is home to the largest concentration of science research and education in the Northwest with faculty and students providing a multitude of diverse outreach services in the community. Equally, Speech and Hearing Clinic faculty, staff and students proudly carry on the tradition of outreach to the greater Seattle and Puget Sound region.
