Looking Back, Moving Forward
This March marked a year since I became director of the Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery at Johns Hopkins. It’s been both an honor and a privilege to serve patients, work with talented colleagues and trainees, and promote the missions of the department. While my tenure in this new role is short, the department’s history is much longer. In 2014, we’ll be celebrating the 100th year of its existence. So much has happened to shape our department over the past century, from the technology we’re able to offer patients to the colleagues we’ve gained and lost.
We’re planning a spectacular celebration to commemorate this momentous milestone, and we hope you’ll be able to join us. Without our donors, coming this far wouldn’t have been possible. Thanks to all of you for helping us achieve so much.
It’s enlightening to see what we’ve accomplished in the last century—and what a bright future we have ahead of us in the next 100 years.
