AAO-HNSF Academic Bowl
Presenters: J. David Osguthorpe, MD (moderator); Mark Wax, MD
Time: 10:30 am
Location: Room 157

Four of the top otolaryngology residency programs in the country will compete in a clinically oriented test of knowledge during the annual meeting. The multimedia questions will be created by our educational faculty, or taken from selected AAO-HNSF educational materials. The audience can compete with the residents through the audience response system while reviewing for Maintenance of Certification (MOC). The educational objectives for this year's Academic Bowl are the following: 1) Test knowledge of current diagnosis and management of diseases of the head and neck. 2) Identify areas meriting further study before the MOC examination. 3) Gain familiarity with the question format utilized by annual inservice and American Board of Otolaryngology exams.

Challenges and Opportunities in the Care of the Aging Voice
Presenters: Michael Johns, MD (moderator); Robert Sataloff, MD; Karen Kost, MD; Albert Merati, MD; John Schweinfurth, MD
Time: 10:30 am
Location: Room 253

Boston, MA Speaking (phonation) plays a critical role in communication, so a weak or aging voice (dysphonia) in the rapidly expanding 65-and-over population in North America may lead to significant impairment in quality of life for older adults.

In a paper presented at the 2010 American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF) Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, MA, researchers raised awareness of the critical importance of geriatrics in otolaryngology and treatment of the aging voice.

Case studies will be used to showcase the means of treatments for the aging voice, pharmaceutical therapy, voice therapy, microlaryngoscopy, and office-based procedures for voice restoration.

When Politics Interfaces with Medicine: Effective Advocacy
Presenters: Denise Sherman, MD (moderator); Gerald Healy, MD; David Kennedy, MD; Harold Pillsbury, MD; David Nielsen, MD
Time: 10:30 am
Location: Room 157

Boston, MA There are many challenges in today's healthcare environment, as fewer patients can afford insurance in the current economic recession, and the cost of health insurance for those who can afford it continues to rise. Otolaryngologists are faced with more patients who are unable to comply with treatments, both medical and surgical, as well as follow-up appointments.

In a seminar presented at the 2010 American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Foundation Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, panelists will discuss emerging issues in healthcare reform. The discussion will include steps for effective advocacy, so that otolaryngologists in all practice settings can advocate for their profession and their practice.
