ALEXANDRIA, VA-- During the AAO-HNSF 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting & OTO Experience, which runs from September 13 through October 25, the most current research in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery will be introduced during the Scientific Oral Presentations. Scientific Oral Presentations are a series of three- to six-minute presentations focusing on current evidence-based research, surgical procedures, and approaches in clinical sciences and their application to patient care.

The 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting includes hundreds of research presentations. The Program Committee, comprised of physician members, selected 14 studies to highlight in recognition of outstanding scientific merit and innovation. These studies have earned the recognition of "Best of Orals."
