Message from the Co-Presidents
We are proud to be serving as co-presidents of the Duke Head and Neck Surgery & Communication Sciences Alumni Society for the third straight year. As you may already know, this is an exciting time to be associated with Duke HNSCS! As of July 1, Duke HNSCS is now its own department! This has been years in the making and, thanks to the hard work of many people including Howard Francis and Ray Esclamado, finally a reality. We have hired several new faculty members in all of the subspecialties who will be expanding our clinical and research activities at Duke, and many of our current faculty have been honored at local, regional, and national levels.
We look forward to working with you all to continue to make the Alumni Society a vibrant community where we can all benefit from one another and come alongside future Duke HNSCS alumni. We would love to connect with you at some of the national conferences (look out for announcements for this) or at the yearly Alumni and Graduation event next June. Please contact us if you would like to be involved more with the Alumni Society, if you have questions about alumni issues, or if you have suggestions on how to make the Alumni Society better!
