Allergy Season is here again.

Springtime means the arrival of green grass, bright flowers and buzzing bees, but for many of us it’s also about sneezing, watery red eyes and a runny nose, thanks to allergies. In this week’s video, you’ll learn why we get allergies, how our immune system turns against us to attack pollen and pet dander, and why allergies seem to be on the rise in developed nations.

With experience, understanding and trust, the doctors and staff at Albany ENT & Allergy Services are a dedicated team of medical professionals who give their best caring for their patients ENT and allergy needs.

The AAO-HNS and the American College of Surgeons (ACS) offer an annual scholarship to subsidize attendance and participation in the Leadership Program in Health Policy and Management at Brandeis University.

This year’s scholarship has been awarded to Gavin Setzen, MD, AAO-HNS/F president-elect.

Scholars are required to provide one year’s health policy-related assistance to the AAO-HNS and the ACS.

ACS anticipates that the program alumni will serve as state councilors for the SurgeonsVoice program, a grassroots initiative meant to foster relationships with Members of Congress.
