Eric P. Wilkinson, MD New Millennium Society Lifetime Donor

August 2019 – Vol. 38, No. 7

Donor Spotlight:

The AAO-HNS foundation is pleased to recognize Eric P. Wilkinson, MD, who recently became a Millennium Society Lifetime Donor through his generous donation to the Annual Fund. Dr. Wilkinson first became a Millennium Society Donor in 2011 as a young physician. When asked what inspired him to become a Lifetime Donor now, he said, “when examining what would be my total support to the AAO-HNSF over my lifetime, it made sense to become a Lifetime Donor now to provide immediate support to the Foundation on the ‘front end.’ Financial support is necessary for any foundation to thrive and giving back to the AAO-HNSF will assist with programs. Additionally, I want to provide an example to younger physicians about supporting the AAO-HNSF, as was demonstrated to me by faculty and mentors since the beginning of my career.”

After entering practice, Dr. Wilkinson became involved in committees and instruction course presentations, as well as humanitarian work. Through the Pan American Committee, he said, “I met many lifetime friends and colleagues. My participation in the Humanitarian Committee and subsequent annual participation in a sustainable otology humanitarian project in Quito, Ecuador, with my Ecuadorian otolaryngologist colleagues, has become one of the anchoring, enriching aspects of my life.” Dr. Wilkinson said that after entering practice, when it came time to make decisions about charitable giving, the AAO-HNSF was at the top of the list. We thank Dr. Wilkinson for his generous support and commitment to the AAO-HNS foundation and the specialty.
