Dr. Evan Norby with Cheyenne Family Medicine receiving his COVID-19 vaccine.UW Employees Among First to Receive COVID Vaccine; More Coming Soon

As shipments of the first Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines began arriving in Wyoming last week, health care workers at the University of Wyoming’s two clinic/residency programs in Cheyenne and Casper were among the first in line to receive their shots.

Other UW employees in front-line health care jobs will soon join them, followed by other employees in high-risk categories. Eventually, COVID-19 vaccinations are expected to be available to all employees and students, in accordance with priorities established by the Wyoming Department of Health.

Both the Cheyenne and Casper Family Medicine Residency programs, part of the UW College of Health Sciences, began administering the first of two Pfizer doses to their residents and faculty physicians Thursday, thus beginning what many might describe as “finally turning the corner” in the nearly yearlong battle against the novel coronavirus.

At right, Dr. Evan Norby, program director for the UW Cheyenne Family Medicine Residency Program, receives his COVID-19 vaccination late last week. He was one of the first health care workers in Wyoming to receive the Pfizer vaccine.

UW Assistant Professor Breanna Krueger works with Rue Steidley, age 7, as a computer software program plays fake words over the speaker.UW Division of Communication Disorders Researches Speech Sound Issues in Children

A grant from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation will support research through the University of Wyoming Division of Communication Disorders aimed at helping children who struggle with speech sound disorders (SSD), a condition that limits a child’s ability to learn and communicate new words and speech sounds.

Breanna Krueger, an assistant professor with the UW Division of Communication Disorders, will lead the study, titled “Interpretation of Misarticulated Words by Children with Speech Sound Disorders.”

“Children learn new words and speech sounds through hearing others in their communicative environments. This process is known as incidental learning,” Krueger says. “It is well established that children develop early representations of sounds of their first language, and use these representations to segment and understand the words they hear.”

At left, UW Assistant Professor Breanna Krueger works with Rue Steidley, age 7, as a computer software program plays fake words over the speaker. Steidley must select whether the word sounds like a word meant for adults or meant for kids. A screen tracker records her motions as she selects a photo of an adult or a kid. The goal of the study is to see how the acquisition of information impacts children’s interpretation of words and how fast their brains are working.
