Dr. John Conley was a renowned Otolaryngologist /Head and Neck Surgeon who is regarded as a founding leader in Head and Neck cancer. He pioneered advances in reconstruction following extensive surgical removal. A great communicator, Dr. Conley was always the sage arbiter in surgical decision making. A poet, musician, and philosopher, his magic extended far beyond the medical domain. Ethical behavior and compassionate care were core components of his persona. He was committed to Humanism in Medicine and established The John Conley Foundation for Ethics and Philosophy to further our potential to be the best we can possibly be. That is the genesis of this symposium.
