Welcome AAO-HNSF 2021 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience Presenters and Faculty,
Greetings from the Annual Meeting Program Committee, and congratulations to you all again for your exceptional submissions to this year’s program. The AAO-HNSF 2021 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience will mark the first in-person specialty-wide otolaryngology meeting since 2019. The health and safety guidelines from Los Angeles, California, have been reassuring, and we are looking forward to reuniting in LA to celebrate the Academy’s 125th anniversary in conjunction with groundbreaking education and dynamic networking events.
COVID-19 Vaccine Policy Issued for the AAO-HNSF 2021 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience
In a statement from Carol R. Bradford, MD, MS, AAO-HNS/F President, and James C. Denneny III, MD, AAO-HNS/F Executive Vice President and CEO, issued on August 12, 2021, it was announced that, “The American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery and its Foundation (AAO-HNS/F) are implementing a policy that will require full COVID-19 vaccination of all participants of the 2021 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience in Los Angeles, California. Safety is our first priority for the individuals and their families connected to the production of and participation in the Annual Meeting. Current thinking identifies fully vaccinated individuals wearing properly positioned masks as the most effective protection from all COVID-19 variants when in public indoor situations. Our mandatory vaccine policy, in addition to the current mask mandate in Los Angeles County will maximize the highest level of safety measures available for all who participate in-person for the Academy’s 125th anniversary celebration.”
