World Sinus Health Awareness Day 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. This public education campaign, recognized on September 28, 2022, was founded by the American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS), and in 2022 is being done in collaboration with the American Rhinologic Society and corporate partner Medtronic.
“Navigating Your Pathway to Better Sinus Health” is the 2022 World Sinus Health Awareness Day theme. Understanding the options for nasal and sinus symptom treatments can be overwhelming. The focus of this year’s education campaign is to provide accurate and reliable information about different treatment options for the spectrum of nasal symptoms, disorders, and diseases. It is the goal of this campaign to provide accessible public and patient information that will assist individuals in understanding their own individual journey to better sinus health.
