125 Strong Campaign

This year the AAO-HNS/F is celebrating its 125th anniversary as a specialty organization. As we reflect on the past 125 years, we’re also looking ahead to continue shaping our future together. Ensuring the AAO-HNSF raises the funds needed to complement our existing programs is a major component of shaping the specialty’s next 125 years and beyond. The 125 Strong Campaign is a fundraising effort designed and driven by practicing otolaryngologists and will provide funds for programs for otolaryngologists locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
