EVP/CEO Spotlight Series

James C. Denneny, MDJames C. Denneny III, MD, AAO-HNS/F EVP/CEO

Every year the Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC) creates a fabulous education experience with new wrinkles designed to enhance attendee’s opportunities and value at our Annual Meeting & OTO Experience. Daniel C. Chelius, Jr., MD, Annual Meeting Program Coordinator, and the AMPC have not disappointed this year. As we move back fully into in-person meetings, there was a record number of submissions for presentations and posters. In addition to the standard program and late-breaking presentations, I have the extreme pleasure and opportunity to identify and select unique topics of special interest to the advancement of the practice of otolaryngology.

This year has presented continued challenges affecting the day-to-day practice of medicine and the increasing need for aggressive advocacy and additional tools to help change the downward trajectory physicians are experiencing in today’s environment. The Spotlight Series in Philadelphia will include different looks at private practice concerns; a review of the FDA proposed rule on over-the-counter hearing aids; a new look at the otolaryngology workforce; a look at how our clinical data registry, Reg-ent, can be an advocacy tool; and if things progress as expected, a look from the FDA perspective at the future of cochlear implant investigation and advancement.
