Founded in 1941, the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA) is celebrating its 75th year of member service. As a member-based, medical specialty organization representing more than 2400 Board-certified otolaryngologists and health care providers, the AAOA strives to offer member value through CME programs, advocacy, and research in support of quality care for the allergic patient. Otolaryngology — frequently referred to as Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) — uniquely combines medical and surgical expertise to care for patients with a variety of conditions affecting the ears, nose, and throat, as well as related conditions of the respiratory tract.
The mission of the AAOA, as an organization of otolaryngologists, is to enhance the knowledge and skill of physicians and others in the care of the allergic patient. AAOA members devote part of their practice to the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disease, and the AAOA actively supports its members through education, research, and advocacy in the care of allergic patients.
