Hal Foster, MD Endowment


“When the next generation comes along we don’t want to hand them today’s AAO-HNS, we want to hand them tomorrow’s AAO-HNS, with the financial strength, with the endowment necessary so that they will not be at the mercy of macro and microeconomic changes. We want to make sure that they have what they need.”

— David R. Nielsen, MD, AAO-HNS/F EVP/CEO, 2002-2014
