Why #Elevate?

  • We want to elevate student interest in the study of voice and voice disorders.
  • We need an elevator pitch to sell our message to potential corporate supporters, allowing ADN to continue to grow its advocacy, support and research initiatives.


To create a fun & creative message about the importance of voice in every aspect of daily life, while engaging the community and capturing the interest of potential corporate sponsors.
