Dear Pan American Friends and Colleagues,
It is a great honor and privilege to invite you to the XXXVII Pan American Congress of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery in Orlando, Florida, June 25-27, 2022. Hosted by the American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery Foundation, the Congress will be held at the wonderful Caribe Royale Hotel.
As the AAO-HNS International Coordinator, I have had the distinct pleasure of engaging and collaborating with otolaryngologists from around the world. The COVID-19 pandemic helped us to see the importance of interpersonal connections and understanding that it takes ALL of us to build a vibrant global community, and one that is undaunted by the myriad of challenges posed by lockdowns, quarantines, and lack of travel. We hope that this Congress will find us in a post-pandemic era where we can renew our fellowship in-person, have an outstanding educational experience, and have a lot of fun while doing it. As President of the Pan American Congress, I pledge it will be an unforgettable experience.
We have chosen Orlando because it is a multicultural city that easily bridges many countries with non-stop flights from all over the world. It is one of the top destinations for meetings and events in the U.S. offering endless entertainment options for individuals and families. So, in addition to world-class scientific programming, the 2022 Pan American Congress offers you a rich and unique cultural experience to renew old friendships and create new ones with leading experts in the field. My deep appreciation to the Congress Scientific Program Committee, the AAO-HNSF leadership and staff, and the Pan American Association Executive Committee for their invaluable contributions to the success of this world-class event.
Details about the Congress and more information about hotels and tourism opportunities can be found on the Congress website. We encourage you to submit your proposals for the Call for Science, make your hotel reservation, and sign up for more information as we begin to rollout key components of the academic program and cultural networking events. Congress registration will open in October 2021.
Please join us in Orlando in 2022! We welcome you with open arms in the best Pan American tradition.
Pablo Stolovitzky, MD
President, 2022 Pan-American ORL Congress
