Here’s to Community and Reunions
Join us for the last day of education, camaraderie, and more!
We can’t believe it is nearly over! It has gone by so fast. It has been beyond anything we could have hoped for or dreamed of in terms of enthusiasm by our community in section meetings, lecture halls, networking, information sharing, and camaraderie.
Speaking of community, ours is a vibrant one. It has been so exciting to see medical students and residents actively interacting and engaging with more senior attendees. Our future is strong.
The discourse regarding equity has been a particularly prominent and urgent one at this meeting, from the John Conley, MD Lecture on Medical Ethics by Jennifer R. Grandis, MD, to the WIO General Assembly, including the incredible performance of Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Laura Veltz, and so many other sessions and events.
Watch for the launch of the Care Equity, Quality, and Safety track in the upcoming Call for Science for the AAO-HNSF 2024 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience in Miami, Florida. We will be asking you, our community, how we can best move forward and demonstrate equity in care, and then deliver it.
Please join us Wednesday for more terrific programming. By the way, it will be our last Wednesday for the Annual Meeting. Next year’s Annual Meeting education program will run from Saturday to Tuesday (with the Presidents’ Reception Friday evening). So be sure to take pictures to show you were here on the “last” Wednesday!
We have an exceptional slate tomorrow and the CME Enthusiast track will continue throughout the morning as well.
There are a number of scientific oral sessions with more opportunities to learn from and encourage our researchers, many of whom are medical students and trainees.
Thank you again for continuing the 127th year conversation about who we are as a community and where we are going!
We wish you all safe travels and warm homecomings with your communities. We look forward to our next reunion in Miami.
