Our organization’s new name, Dysphonia International, was officially introduced at the 2022 Virtual Symposium and you will start to see that reflected in our materials. Please know, our Mission is the same, but now more inclusive to support even more people because voice disorders do not have boundaries.
As the NSDA evolves into Dysphonia International, we will be introducing new programming for our community including more webinars. We are excited that Dr. Robert W. Bastian will launch this new series. Dr. Bastian serves as the Chair of our Medical Advisory Board and is a leading expert in voice conditions. His topic will be A Tour of Voice Disorders with a Focus on Spasmodic Dysphonia. We hope you will join us on Wednesday, June 29, 2022, at 6:00 PM EDT!
