Abstract

Jonathan C. Irish, President of the American Head and Neck Society (AHNS) for 2017 to 2018, in his Presidential Address highlights the challenges and opportunities of the Society’s reorganization in the rapidly changing field of head and neck surgery and details how AHNS members can harness this change to direct the future of their field. Specifically, AHNS members’ vital roles as technically proficient surgeons, surgical team members, researchers, teachers, and leaders within an evolving medical system are explored.
