Spasmodic dysphonia (SD) is a neurological voice disturbance that causes spasming of the vocal folds. It is also considered a focal dystonia of the larynx.

The Spasmodic Dysphonia Support Group of Charlotte is an opportunity for patients with SD to meet others, get support for their condition, and keep up with the latest medical research.

The group meets from 7-9 p.m. the first Thursday of every other month on the second floor of CEENTA's SouthPark office unless otherwise noted. The 2016 meeting dates are:

  • February 9, 2017
  • April 13, 2017
  • June 8, 2017
  • August 10, 2017
  • October 12, 2017
  • December 14, 2017
