Australian Dysphonia Network: Help us to bring the voiceless back into the conversation
While the causes of dysphonia are many, the trickiest ones are neurological. Those who are affected ‘look and seem’ otherwise well, which often makes diagnosis slow, and public understanding poor. Their aim is to support people affected by life changing voice disorders or dysphonia by educating, lobbying and raising awareness of voice disorders, including raising funds for research into cause & management. They will be fundraising to achieve these goals. Their proposed projects: ADN 2017 Corporate Proposal -reduced.pdf.
