Forum 2018 – Speakers Announced

We are excited to announce that registration is now open for

‘Voice Disorders – join the conversation’

Mercure Sydney

Saturday 27th October 2018

This one day event will provide an opportunity to hear from experts and learn what’s happening in the world of voice disorders research, treatments and management. Above all, you will meet other who share your experience and who understand life with a broken voice.

The program is now available and will provide both formal and informal opportunities to learn, catch up with others, to laugh and to exchange tips and strategies.

The event is open to people living with any chronic voice disorder. We encourage you to bring your partner or friend because we recognise the impact that dysphonia has on relationships … this event will provide them a chance to meet others, exchange stories and feel supported.

We also welcome people working or studying in the field of voice health and who seek to learn and understand more about the lived experience of those of us affected.

Hosted by Entertainer Mark Kristian (a founding member of the ADN who knows  first hand the challenges of life with a voice disorder), the day is shaping up to be jam packed with information and opportunities.
