Archive: UW Voice and Swallow Clinic hosts voice clinic for APT actors

Recently actors from Spring Green’s renown American Players Theater came to Madison for a one-day workshop on voice care for professional voice users. This time, the team from the UW Health Voice and Swallow Clinic, which specializes in evaluation and treatment of patients with voice, resonance, swallowing and airway disorders, performed while the actors experienced role reversal and played the part of the audience.

Associate Professor and voice surgeon Seth H Dailey, MD and Director of the Voice and Swallow Clinic, Susan Thibeault, PhD, along with the rest of the clinic team, demonstrated voice recovery techniques and explained the importance of voice care.

The UW Health Voice and Swallow Clinic is at the forefront of providing in-office treatments for swallowing disorders and many voice, resonance and airway conditions. Our voice specialists enjoy an international reputation for excellence in providing highly specialized care for professional and amateur singers and actors, as well as other professional voice users such as teachers, broadcasters, salespeople, clergy and others.
