This annual program is sponsored by the Metro Atlanta Educational Society for Otolaryngology, and highlights and supports research performed by residents throughout the previous year. Presentations are judged by a panel of Emory and private physicians, with the top projects receiving awards.
For several years, the department has sponsored a free head and neck cancer screening through the Yul Brynner Foundation at the Atlanta Motor Speedway during the NASCAR Atlanta 500. Interested (and just curious) residents and faculty are able to experience the NASCAR race environment both inside and outside of the track while giving back to the community.
Organized by faculty member Dr. Charles Moore, this annual event offers a variety of multidisciplinary health screening services to underserved populations in the city. Dr. Moore founded and directs the HEALing Community Center, a free clinic that provides a broad spectrum of primary care needs in addition to treating problems specific to otolaryngology.
The department holds an end-of-the-year event to officially congratulate the graduating residents and wish them well in their future endeavors. Faculty, residents, graduates, friends, and family attend. For the evening's highlight, the junior residents roast their attendings and chief residents, who of course have a chance at rebuttal.
