Therese Pirozzi is an associate professor in Bouvé College’s Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northeastern University. She is a practicing speech-language pathologist with a focus on language and health literacy of low-income families, neuroplasticity of the brain, and the effects of brain injury on survivors and their families.

Over the summer, she received a grant for the “Active Brain, Healthy Brain Exercise Program” from the Community Endowment of Lexington—an endowed fund of the Foundation for MetroWest.

A piece of advice that Therese thinks is valuable to students is “the glass is always half empty or half full – your choice…”

This is an exciting grant and an amazing partnership with the Lexington community. Congratulations Therese!
