you by Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center

Anna Margaret “Annie” Glenn is the widow of astronaut and Senator John Glenn. She suffered from a severe stutter for most of her life. Once she received treatment and overcame her disorder, she became a tireless advocate for people with disabilities and communication disorders. In 2016, Governor John Kasich passed a law naming February 17 (Annie’s birthday) as Annie Glenn Communication Disorders Awareness Day in the State of Ohio.
