New York, NY (February 2009) -- Every year on April 16, otolaryngologists (ear-nose-throat specialists) and other voice health professionals worldwide join together to recognize World Voice Day. World Voice Day encourages men and women, young and old, to assess their vocal health and take action to improve or maintain good voice habits.
The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary has scheduled a voice screening for 45 professional singers. In addition, professional singers may e-mail and join our mailing list for future activities and receive a Singer’s Resource Packet.
