World Voice Day 2020 | Focus On Your Voice

World Voice Day aims to highlight the impact of voice changes!

Dysphonia can be caused by many medical and neurological conditions such as Laryngeal Dystonia. Join in to raise awareness, support research into the early diagnosis and management of voice disorders!

Dysphonia can be debilitating and isolating. It can impact on individuals, the workforce and the broader community. It can ruin careers, relationships and lead to depression, yet it is often poorly diagnosed and frequently misunderstood. The Australian Dysphonia Network aims to change that by raising awareness through today’s launch of ‘The Value of Voice’ a short (90 sec) promo clip that is being shared in honour of World Voice Day.
