2023 BOG Model Society Awardee


 

The Georgia Society of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery (GSO/HNS) is the recipient of the 2023 AAO-HNS Board of Governors (BOG) Model Society Award. The mission of the GSO/HNS is to improve patient care through the support of education and research by empowering otolaryngologists in achieving the highest possible standards of professional ability and integrity.

The GSO/HNS advocates on behalf of its patients and members as an active, influential state society and provides a robust slate of continuing medical education activities, including two major conferences each year. Their active participation with the Medical Association of Georgia has resulted in positive influence at the Georgia General Assembly.

The society maintains regular communications with its members through the “ENTertainer” newsletter. The newsletter is a valuable source of information, including a report from the president, reports from Emory University and Augusta University/Medical College of Georgia academic institutions, faculty and resident updates, and related case reports.

The GSO/HNS also maintains an active participation with the BOG and seeks ways to advance the mission of the Academy. Society BOG representatives give reports on both state and national issues.
