World Sinus Health Awareness Day

Public and patient information and resources for September 13.

2023 Bltn Sept 1500x447

World Sinus Health Awareness Day (September 13) is designed to inform and educate patients around the world about the causes of their nasal and sinus symptoms as well as various treatment options and when they should seek additional specialized care. The American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS), in collaboration with corporate partners Medtronic and Optinose, is providing accessible public and patient information that will assist individuals in understanding their own individual journey to better sinus health.

Bringing attention to the impact of chronic symptoms of nasal obstruction and congestion, nasal drainage, facial pressure, and/or decreased smell that are not responding to medications or other treatments is a focus point of World Sinus Health Awareness Day. Arming patients and their caregivers with clinically proven information is an essential part of this campaign so that they can navigate their way to better sinus health.
