Cecelia E. Schmalbach, MD, a New Millennium Society Lifetime Donor

December 2019/January 2020 – Vol. 38, No. 11

The AAO-HNS foundation is pleased to recognize Cecelia E. Schmalbach, MD, who became a Millennium Society Lifetime Donor at the Annual Meeting through her generous donation to the Annual Fund and the WIO Endowment. Dr. Schmalbach reflected back on why she first became a Millennium Society donor in 2013, and just became a lifetime donor. “The Academy afforded me a wonderful venue to remain engaged in academic otolaryngology during my years of active duty in the United States Air Force. It is in gratitude that I give back to the foundation.” It is Dr. Schmalbach’s hope that her donation will help continue advancements made in the field of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. “Giving back to the foundation and our specialty ensures that we have thought leaders in every aspect of otolaryngology, from advocacy, quality development, and cutting-edge research to education and mentorship of our future otolaryngology leaders.”
