Audiology Dept May Close

A rally yesterday in Knoxville brought out families of deaf children to protest cutbacks in the Department of Audiology and Speech Pathology at the University of Tennessee. Budget cuts may lead to the department's shut down in the next couple of years. The programs helps some 2500 patients. A vote is planned this Thursday by the UT Board of Trustees on the department’s future.
