Boston, MA Speaking (phonation) plays a critical role in communication, so a weak or aging voice (dysphonia) in the rapidly expanding 65-and-over population in North America may lead to significant impairment in quality of life for older adults.

In a paper presented at the 2010 American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF) Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, MA, researchers raised awareness of the critical importance of geriatrics in otolaryngology and treatment of the aging voice.

Case studies will be used to showcase the means of treatments for the aging voice, pharmaceutical therapy, voice therapy, microlaryngoscopy, and office-based procedures for voice restoration.

When Politics Interfaces with Medicine: Effective Advocacy
