Please join us for a virtual get-together hosted by the Washington, DC and Northern VA Dysphonia Support Groups on Thursday, May 11, at 4:00 PM ET.
We are really excited to host speakers from 2 separate labs in Boston on Clinical Research for Laryngeal Dystonia. Both of these labs are independently studying laryngeal dystonia and presently recruiting for different studies. They are doing amazing work and thought we should hear about what is going on and maybe learn something in the meantime.
Since this meeting is virtual all are welcome to attend, no matter your location!

“We don’t yet see things clearly. We are squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing Him directly just as He knows us!”
— 1 Corinthians 13:12
We Love You Always Dan!
