Presentations at Pretoria University

  Malisa's Meander was not all play...on Feb 20, 2004 she was the key-note speaker at a seminar on Cochlear Implants at the University of Pretoria . On Saturday, February 21st she presented a workshop to cochlear implantees and communication pathology professionals at the same University. This page shows some of the academics and others that she met and rubbed   shoulders with and also the pleasure derived from these presentations by all and sundry. Her enthusiasm was contagious and she received more invitations to speak elsewhere.
