The five articles presented in Part 1 elaborated on several vital issues within the topic of dysphagia. Authors Jessica Zarzour, Loretta Johnson, and Cheri Canon discussed strategies to employ to minimize clinician and patient exposure to radiation during a fluoroscopic evaluation of the swallow. In the second article, authors Tsega Temtem and Mark Corkins educated the audience on the development and function of the gastrointestinal tract and the mechanism of digestion of foods into nutrients and waste. Next, author Adele Evans presented an extraordinary perspective of the laryngeal system focusing on the differences between the infant and adult laryngeal anatomy and its subsequent impact on laryngeal function.

Lastly, authors Jamie Mahurin-Smith and Catherine Genna comprehensively highlighted the importance of providing competent assistance to breastfeeding mothers.
