Tri-Unity Conference 2021 will be a virtual two-day event. Beginning on April 16th at 3:30 – 7:00 pm and continuing on April 17th from 10:00 am – 5:30 pm. The conference will be focusing on trauma, innovation, social equity, mental health, and more.
The Tri-Unity Conference was created 14 years ago. It began as a collaboration between Direct Therapy Services, Aprendamos Intervention Team, and New Mexico State University-Communication Disorders Department. The partners at Direct Therapy Services and Aprendamos Intervention Team felt it was their responsibility to give back to their community and the local university. As practicing therapists, they also recognized that opportunities for education on specific topics were not found locally, and many therapists would travel to hear speakers and continue their education. So together with NMSU they created the conference.
The intention of the Tri-Unity Conference is to unite the community through education and to provide training to our community by hosting speakers who are experts in their fields of study. In doing so, the conference supports NMSU students and faculty. All proceeds from the conference are donated back to an endowment at New Mexico State University, and funds from the endowment provide funding for students and faculty of the NMSU Communication Disorders Department.
