Clearing Up Throat Problems

While at Baylor, I launched, implemented and executed a quarterly health education series at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas where local public radio host KERA's Sam Baker moderated. I oversaw script and event production of the series as well as creation of this article on voice health.
