Description: On Sunday April 15, 2018, the Stanford Voice and Swallowing Center at the Department of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery will be honoring Word Voice Day, celebrating our voices and encouraging habits that will help to avoid voice problems and disorders. Specifically, we will offer free voice screenings for singers in the Stanford University community. Laryngeal imaging, questionnaire, perceptual voice evaluation and computerized voice analysis will be conducted by expert otolaryngologists and speech language pathologists. Singers have been uniquely dependent on otolaryngologists and speech pathologists since the mid 20th-century. Many of the issues that singers encounter during their training, practice, and performance can be addressed with early detection and intervention. Participants will be informed if they are at high risk or may already have voice disorder and referred to our voice specialists at the Stanford Voice and Swallowing Center for further medical consultation. Participants will also receive educational information about their voices as well as tips for keeping their voices healthy. In addition, this even is also IRB approved for research. With the information that we collect, we can better learn to prevent and treat voice problems in singers.
