The US-based organisation “Dysphonia International” (formerly the National Spasmodic Dysphonia Association) is a foundation “dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by spasmodic dysphonia and related voice conditions through research, education, awareness, and support”, eager to keep patients informed. They have recently expanded their remit to cover other neurolaryngological disorders.
Renowned American laryngologists, experts in neurolaryngology are included in their board. Their board is presently very keen to extent their activities outside the US.
ELS has been recently contacted via the “Winter Days of Laryngology” course by American previously invited speakers, like Stacey Halum, Ramon Franco or Peak Woo.
This a great opportunity for our organization:
The ELS members can register with this association to become referent laryngologists.
They can help us to provide better support to our patients.
Dysphonia International proposed also to sponsor financially clinical and basic research and to offer travel grants for presentations at major events, which could really be helpful for our young members.
Marc Remacle, ELS senior adviser would be pleased to help you in contacting Mr Charles Reavis, President of Dysphonia.org and Mrs Kimberly Kuman, their CEO.
Peak Woo has kindly agreed to give one of our monthly lectures on neuroloaryngology, so watch our ELS Events calendar for more information coming soon.
