Dr. Robert H. Ossoff, Guy M. Maness Chair in Otolaryngology, delivered the 27th Annual Daniel C. Baker, Jr. Lecture to the American Laryngological Association – marking the first time a Vanderbilt faculty member delivered the lecture. The topic of his address was “Lasers in Laryngology: Past, Present and Future.”

Ossoff’s presentation was part of the Combined Otolaryngological Spring Meeting (COSM) in Palm Desert, California in May.

Ossoff also moderated a panel on “Treatment Updates for Benign Laryngeal Lesions” and was re-elected Secretary of the Association.

Other Vanderbilt faculty members participating in COSM were Dr. Mark Converse, Dr. James L. Netterville, Dr. C. Gaelyn Garrett, and Dr. David S. Haynes.
