With more than two decades of experience as an otolaryngologist, Dr. Angelo Consiglio currently practices at Jackson Hospital in Marianna, Florida. To help him remain up-to-date on changes in the field, Angelo Consiglio, MD, maintains membership in the American Rhinologic Society and attended the 2016 Summer Sinus Symposium.
Established in 1954, the American Rhinologic Society seeks to advance the science and ethical practice of rhinology. Rhinology deals with disorders of the nose, sinuses, and skull base. The Society also promotes research, education, and excellence in regard to patient care. In addition, the organization offers members continuing medical education activities and fosters networking relationships among its members.
The sixth annual Summer Sinus Symposium took place July 15 and 16, 2016, in Chicago, Illinois. Attendees watched experts dissect cadaver sinuses and listened to keynote speakers. National leaders in rhinology led discussions on a variety of topics, including balloon dilation technology, post-nasal drip, and pediatric rhinosinusitis. They also had an opportunity to garner continuing education credits for participating in the symposium. The 2017 event is scheduled for July 14 through 16 in Washington, D.C.
