12th Oxford Dysfluency Conference Awards
The Dave Rowley Award for International Initiatives
Dave Rowley served as ODC Chair and Co-Chair for many years before he passed away in 2015. Dave had many professional values, and one of them was international collaboration. He valued and encouraged new research, the creation of clinical and learning initiatives in under-resourced or developing countries, and collaborative working across countries and disciplines. The Dave Rowley Award for International Initiatives will be presented to an individual or international collaborative team that exemplifies Dave’s generous spirit, engaging fellowship, and international vision.
