In 2013, Dr. Angelo Consiglio began working as assistant professor of otolaryngology at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. To help him stay up-to-date on changes made within his field, Angelo Consiglio, MD, belongs to several relevant industry associations, such as The American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA).
Founded in 1941, the AAOA represents ear, nose, and throat board-certified practitioners. This member-based organization enhances the knowledge of its members through education, research, and advocacy on behalf of allergic patients.
To keep its members updated on developments in the field, the AAOA hosts an annual scientific meeting. The 2016 event, scheduled for September 16 through 18 at the Omni San Diego Hotel, features general sessions, workshops, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. The meeting’s purpose is to advance physician performance and improve patient care outcomes.
Geared toward otolaryngologists, the meeting covers topics such as immunology, allergies, inflammatory diseases of the respiratory tract, and rhinology. Attendees can garner continuing medical education (CME) credits, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, on clinical issues relating to immunology and inflammatory diseases of the airways, head, and neck.
