International Symposium Offers Sessions, Speakers from 30 Countries

The AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO Experience is a global event encapsulating a remarkable international program.

To start, the International Symposium showcases cutting-edge content, offering 25 Miniseminars with speakers from more than 30 countries over four days. Several presenters represent the 2017 Honored International Guests—China, France, Mexico, and South Korea. New this year for the second International Symposium is the ability for attendees to earn CME credit. Providing a global perspective of popular topics in otolaryngology, this program enlightens the entire community and offers high visibility to international presenters.

For those not able to attend the meeting in person in Chicago, six sessions presented on September 10, the first day of the International Symposium, are to be presented in Spanish and broadcast live over the AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO Experience website, www.entannualmeeting.org.
