An excerpt from the Message from Leadership by Kathleen L. Yaremchuk, MD, MSA, AAO-HNS/F 2022-2023 President, and James C. Denneny III, MD, AAO-HNS/F Executive Vice President and CEO.

“The Academy is a leader in healthcare because of the vast wealth of members who are so impassioned about the specialty, the practice of medicine, and their patients.

The depth of our accomplishments is a direct result of the more than 900 volunteer members who give of their time, expertise, and leadership on the AAO-HNS/F 65+ committees. That number grows exponentially  once you include the International Advisory Board and International Corresponding Societies, Otolaryngology Private Practice Section, Section for Residents and Fellows-in-Training, Women in Otolaryngology Section, Young Physicians Section, Board of Governors, Guideline Task Force, Reg-entSM committees, journals’ associate editors, editorial board members, and reviewers, Annual Meeting presenters, State Trackers, ENT PAC donors, Bulletin contributors, and so many others.

At every turn of the Academy’s Strategic Plan and work, there are members—ready for the call to support the vision of optimizing quality ear, nose, and throat patient care. This extensive and expansive network of dedicated individuals spans across continents and connects otolaryngology-head and neck surgeons around the world to achieve excellence and provide high-quality, evidence-informed, and equitable ear, nose, and throat care through professional and public education, research, and health policy advocacy.

While the 2023 Annual Report highlights some of the initiatives, achievements, and progress made by the AAO-HNS/F throughout the year, it is by no means inclusive of all efforts. As we navigate this evolving landscape, our collective efforts will continue to be needed for our specialty’s voice to be heard and to continue to heed the call for change today and tomorrow.”
