The American Head and Neck Society (AHNS) is greateful for your attendance to the AHNS 9th International Conference on Head and Neck Cancer, held July 16-20, 2016 in Seattle, Washington, USA.

The theme was Technology Transforming Head and Neck Cancer Care. The scientific program was thoughtfully designed to bring together all disciplines related to the treatment of head and neck cancer. Our assembled group of renowned head and neck surgeons, radiologists and oncologists identified key areas of interest and major topics to explore.

Attendees had a chance to participate in panels, instructional courses, professor lunches and tumor boards. We hope you found many topics of interest.

Of special note was our exceptional line-up of keynote speakers:

  • Curt Cronin – Founder, Mastery Technologies; Former Leader Navy SEAL Team
