The goal of this Chapter is:

Hi Chapter Friends,
I wanted to re-engage with everyone and have you Save the Dates for our upcoming meetings, which will be Thursday March 8, 2018, and Tuesday May 8, 2018, from 6-8pm. Our meetings will be in the 1st floor conference room B at the Baylor McNair Campus, 7200 Cambridge Street (near Old Spanish Trail). Enter the driveway on Cambridge, make the first left towards the McNair building, and go into the underground parking – I think it’s a nominal fee but not sure. We’ll have some light food at the meetings.
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 surgical, medical, and voice rehabilitation interventions.
Also, please consider registering for The Voice Foundation 47th Annual Symposium in Philadelphia, May 30-June3, 2018, at https://voicefoundation.org/
I’ll be in touch again closer to our meeting dates, and feel free to reach out to me. Warm regards-
President, Ken Altman
