April 16this World Voice Day sponsored by the American Academy of Otolaryngology. The theme this year is Educate Your Voice. Here are some tips on caring for your voice: Don’t smoke. Keep yourself well hydrated. Water is the best. Don’t scream or shout excessively. Take a vocal recess if you have laryngitis. Resting your voice will help it to heal. Be smart and get evaluated by one of our physicians at Ocean Otolaryngology if you have persistent hoarseness.
