MusiCares Co-Sponsors Voice Screenings For Professional Singers
In Celebration of World Voice Day 2013 Osborne Head & Neck Institute and MusiCares are offering free voice screenings for professional vocalists. Without proper health coverage, access to quality vocal care can be limited and difficult to afford. That's why preventative vocal health care is critical for injury prevention. A screening exam will help to not only identify existing injuries, but also areas of concern that should be addressed before more serious issues arise.
Qualified participants will receive an individual videostroboscopy to diagnose potential vocal problems and assess injury risk. Screening services will be conducted by Dr. Reena Gupta, MD FACS, director, Voice & Swallowing Center, Osborne Head & Neck Institute.
Appointments must be made in advance through MusiCares. Signups and pre-qualification will be conducted at the MusiCares vocal workshop in Santa Monica, Calif., on April 6. For more information, or to register for the workshop call 800.687.4227or register online.

In celebration of International Noise Awareness Day 2013, Starkey Hearing Foundation and MusiCares will offer free hearing screenings for music professionals on April 24 in Santa Monica, Calif.
It's no secret that extended exposure to loud noises can lead to hearing loss. No one knows this better than musicians and others who make their living in live music. While hearing loss can't be reversed, further damage can be prevented. That's why it's important to not only take precautions to protect your hearing, but to have an annual assessment as well.
Qualified participants will receive an individual hearing test to diagnose potential problems, as well as valuable hearing protection recommendations. Screening services will be conducted by audiologists from the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
