For the first time in its history, the AAO-HNS/F touched down in Cuba to participate in the 35th Congreso Panamericano de Otorrinolaringología y Cirugía de Cabeza y Cuello. The Congreso has long been a mainstay of the Latin American otolaryngology calendar, but this year took on special significance as the first official encounter between U.S. and Cuban otolaryngology—head and neck surgery communities since diplomatic relations were restored between the two countries. Academy leaders including the President, President-elect, EVP/CEO, and the Coordinator for International Affairs met with counterparts from across the region to deepen ties and chart a course for continued collaboration.
