Description: On Friday, April 16, the UH Ear, Nose & Throat Institute will present an event celebrating World Voice Day, streamed over Zoom for UH caregivers and patients from the UH Cleveland Medical Center atrium from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. The goal is to celebrate the many ways we use our voices and raise awareness about prevention and treatment of voice disorders.
City/place: Cleveland, Ohio Venue address: University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Atrium
Performer/s: The event will be educational, but will also feature several musical performances to highlight the beauty and healing power of the human voice, especially in this unprecedented time of COVID-19. In addition, the event will feature a testimonial from a patient who will describe life with a tracheoesophageal voice prosthesis (TEP) performed here at UH. This is a device that is placed in the wall that separates the trachea and esophagus to enable a total laryngectomy patient to make a more natural sounding voice. Featured UH speakers at the event will include Nicole Maronian, MD, Chair of the Department of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery, N. Scott Howard, MD, Director of the UH Center for Voice, Airway and Swallowing Disorders, Tracey Newman, MA, CCC-SLP, and Lex Rakowski, MS, CCC-SLP, speech-language pathologists who work with patients with voice disorders, and Seneca Block, MA, MT-BC and Expressive therapy program manager for University Hospitals Connor Integrative Health Network. Dr. Maronian will speak to the importance of maintaining a healthy voice, while Dr. Howard will provide details on the history of World Voice Day and what patients should expect from a voice evaluation. Vocalists scheduled to perform include Seneca Block, Robin Roseberry, Mark Dolan, Lex Rakowski and a contingent from Healing Harmony, UH’s music therapy program.
