Please join us for a virtual meeting on Thursday, May 9, 2024, from 5:00 – 6:30 PM PDT.


Have you experienced difficulty speaking on the telephone and find you need to repeat yourself constantly? Many of us with a voice disorder find the telephone and noisy environments present unique challenges. At this meeting we will explore telecommunication devices and other mechanisms to enhance our ability to be understood.

Our guest speakers include Tyler Kropf, Outreach Regional Director for Sorenson, a global communication solutions provider and Carol Doles, Eastern Regional & Canada Coordinator for Dysphonia International and Co-Leader of the Greater Columbus Dysphonia Support Group.

As always, Michael Johns, MD will be available to address your clinical concerns and there will be ample opportunity for participants to provide support for one another.

I look forward to seeing you.
