“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we believe it is critical for patients to be able to recognize and understand the different types of nasal and sinus symptoms when it comes to COVID-19, the common cold or upper respiratory infection, allergies or allergic rhinitis, non-allergic rhinitis, and chronic or acute rhinosinusitis, commonly known as sinusitis.”
James C. Denneny III, MD

WEBINAR: In recognition of World Sinus Health Awareness Day, the AAO-HNS gathered a panel of expert ear, nose, and throat doctors, also known as ENTs or otolaryngologists, from around the country to answer patient questions about sinus and nasal symptoms, treatments, seeking medical care, and more.
