Edie Hapner Honored by the American Laryngological Association

Edie R. Hapner, the George W. Barber Jr. Foundation Endowed Professor of Otolaryngology, co-director of Voice Center, and director of the Division of Hearing and Speech at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, was awarded the prestigious American Laryngological Award from the American Laryngological Association. Dr. Hapner is only the second speech-language pathologist to receive this award in its 35-year history.

Founded in 1878, the ALA is a scholarly organization of physicians and scientists who have made significant contributions to the care of patients with disorders of the larynx and upper aerodigestive tract.

“I am honored and humbled to receive this award and to be listed alongside some of the most inspiring and innovative laryngologists and scientists in the long history of the ALA,” Hapner said. “I share this award with my colleagues and partner laryngologists from Emory University, the University of Southern California, and now the great University of Alabama at Birmingham, who have guided and supported my incredible journey into the world of voice and upper airway.”

Dr. Hapner earned a Ph.D. in speech and hearing science from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
