Sean Parker Institute faculty returned to in-person medical education at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Otolaryngology, just concluded in Los Angeles, the first otolaryngology meeting to be held in person since the beginning of the pandemic. Anais Rameau, MD, MPhil, the Institute's expert on swallowing disorders, discussed her experience as an inventor and entrepreneur in a course focused on new medical device development, showcased her award-winning work on a vocal fold injection simulator in the Academy's SimTank, and presented her start-up derived from her research in artificial intelligence applied to laryngoscopy. She demonstrated the depth and breadth of her interests by also addressing the care of patients with dementia and the use of proton-pump inhinbotors to treat reflux in other panels and courses, and assuming the Chair of the Academy's HIstory and Archives Committee. Sean Parker Fellow Hayley Born, MD discussed the role of social media in otolaryngology, and continued her work as part of the Women in Otolaryngology Program and Research Committees.
