An experienced otolaryngologist, Dr. Angelo Consiglio sees patients as a staff member at Jackson Hospital in Marianna, Florida. Complementing his professional work, Angelo Consiglio, MD, maintains memberships with a number of medical associations, including the American Rhinologic Society (ARS).

Dedicated to supporting the professional growth of its members, ARS hosts an annual Summer Meeting which brings together the nation’s leading otolaryngologists for several days of engaging educational opportunities. This year, the association hosted its 5th annual meeting on July 15 and 16 at Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. Through the support of such sponsors as Cook Medical and Olympus America Inc., the event featured numerous specialized panels on important industry topics.

During the Summer Meeting, attendees had the opportunity to attend short practice-related sessions on everything from handling surgical complications to necessary preoperative procedures. The meeting also provided updates on several emerging subjects such as the treatment of asthma and similar allergic conditions. Those who wished to earn continuing medical education credits for attending the meeting could also participate in the rhinology course. In addition to current topics, this session allowed otolaryngologists to gain a first-hand look at the human sinus cavity during a live cadaver dissection. Those who completed the requirements of the course were eligible to earn over 15 credits through the American Medical Association.
