DUKE VOICE CARE CENTERS
13TH ANNUAL WORLD VOICE DAY CELEBRATION APRIL 6, 2019
RENAISSANCE RALEIGH HOTEL
WITH MARK MOLITERNO
World Voice Day is an international day of celebration of the human voice. Singers, actors, teachers and preachers need healthy voices to do their jobs, but we all need our voices to connect us to the world. Duke Voice Care Center has led North Carolinas observation of World Voice Day (WVD) since 2007. Each year at World Voice Day the vocal health experts of Duke Voice Care Center help people learn about how the voice works, how people can keep their voices healthy and strong, and what to do if they have a voice problem. The theme of WVD 2019 is Mindful Voice, which will provide multiple opportunities for people to learn about how mind-body wellness principles apply to vocal health and function.
Designated as a Duke Center for Excellence in 2006, Duke Voice Care Center is a specialty practice in the Division of Head and Neck Surgery & Communication Sciences at Duke Health. The Duke Voice Care team includes laryngologists (ENT doctors with special training in caring for voices), speech-language pathologists and clinical singing voice rehabilitation specialists (speech-language pathologists who are also performers and voice teachers) who work collaboratively to evaluate and treat voice problems.
In 2010, Duke Voice Care Center announced the establishment of the Patrick D. Kenan Award for Vocal Health and Wellness, to be presented annually to individuals whose lives and careers increase awareness of the importance of the human voice. The award pays tribute to the legacy of a dynamic and ambitious Duke physician and performer, Patrick D. Kenan. Duke Voice Care Center was formed in large part as a result of Dr. Kenans vision for vocal health. Mark Moliterno will receive the 2019 Patrick D. Kenan Award for Vocal Health and Wellness at Duke Voice Care Centers 13th Annual World Voice Day Celebration Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the Renaissance Raleigh Hotel in Raleigh, NC.
