Hi Chapter Friends,
Our next meeting will be Monday, February 4, 2019, 6-8pm, which will be our joint meeting with the Houston area chapter of the Pan American Vocology Association, likely to include some exciting presentations, challenging cases, and a broader attendance. Please RSVP if it’s likely you’re coming so we can get a headcount for food. Also include your cell number. All welcome. Meetings are held in the 1st floor conference room B at the Baylor McNair Campus, 7200 Cambridge Street (near Old Spanish Trail) in Houston, TX. Enter the driveway on Cambridge, make the first left towards the McNair building, and go into the underground parking for a nominal fee. We’ll have some light food at the meetings. A few additional announcements:
• We’re starting a Chapter Directory as a resource for our collaborations, to include photo, brief background, and practice specialty and location. More details to follow.
• We will be seeking to enhance our chapter page on The Voice Foundation website – please let us know if you would like to volunteer to help, or if you have ideas.
• Please let us know any nominees who you believe would be interested in our group, and we’ll add them to our list (name, degree, email and affiliation).
For those of you who are new to our meetings, The Voice Foundation is an international organization with an annual meeting in Philadelphia each spring, along with other activities including the Journal of Voice. Our chapter mission is to build a broader community of laryngologists, speech & language pathologists, singing coaches and voice trainers in order to create a venue for discussing challenges in the care of the patient with complex voice and related disorders. There are 4 annual meetings, each designed with 4 case presentations in order to elicit a vibrant exchange regarding pathophysiology, case management, and the roles for surgery, medical management, and voice rehabilitation.
Also, please consider attending this year’s annual meeting in Philadelphia in June 2019.
