In the past few weeks, many of our family, friends, and colleagues have experienced catastrophy with hurricanes, as well as the earthquakes in Mexico.
The choice to provide assistance in times of catastrophic events is very personal. Some may donate time, supplies, dollars, etc. Some may go through national or international organizations where others want to provide support more on the local level. Our otolaryngology community always comes together during these times to support not only our individual local communities but those of our friends and colleagues, here in the U.S. and around the globe.
No matter what your choice of giving may be, please continue with that generous spirit as assistance is always needed for clean-up, recovery, and in some cases, rebuilding.
