Voices from across the voice care field – surgeons, scientists, speech-language pathologists, voice teachers and performing artists – rang out from Philadelphia during the Voice Foundation's 42nd annual symposium, which focused on the Care of the Professional Voice.
Touro College School of Health Sciences students from the graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology and their mentor, Professor Gisele Oliveira, Ph.D., presented Voice and Communication Characteristics in Voicemails: A Comparison between Males and Females. Students Rina Hoch, Zisel Maxwell, and Dina Braunstein drummed up interest in their work and ideas, and they did an outstanding job representing the program and the college at the symposium.
