Bastian Voice Institute

Speakers at 2014 NSDA Symposium
L to R: Dr. Robert Bastian, Dr. Christy Ludlow, Dr. Andrew Blitzer, Dr. Joel Blumin, Dr. Seth Dailey, and Dr. Brent Richardson

Bastian Voice Institute physicians Dr. Bastian and Dr. Richardson both spoke on May 3 at the National Spasmodic Dysphonia Association’s (NSDA) 25th Anniversary Symposium, held at the Hilton Garden Inn O’Hare Airport in Des Plaines, IL.

The symposium featured a number of medical professionals who have extensive experience with spasmodic dysphonia, and the sessions included panel discussions and audience Q&A. The stated goals of the symposium were: to provide a learning environment in which people with spasmodic dysphonia may enhance their understanding of the disorder; to facilitate an exchange of information on how to live effectively with the disorder; and to increase NSDA’s capabilities in measuring and understanding the needs of its members in order to develop future programs.
