Emily Quinn, PhD, MS
Home Institution: OHSU Institute on Development & Disability
Health System: OHSU
Project Title: Delivering a Telehealth Language Intervention to Children and their Caregivers in Rural Communities
Dr. Quinn received her Ph.D. in Early Childhood Special Education at Vanderbilt University and her M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She is an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Development and Disability within the Department of Pediatrics at Oregon Health & Science University. Dr. Quinn has a strong research interest in telehealth, which arose from working as a pediatric speech-language pathologist and experiencing difficulty providing intervention to patients in rural communities.
