My Fellow SOHN Members,
We are truly living through a unique and unprecedented era in not only SOHN’s history, but our nation’s history. The present pandemic is presenting challenges to health care not seen since the Spanish Flu pandemic a century ago. And now, we see the racial tensions that have been building for years erupt into protest and outrage at the unwarranted death of George Floyd. This was an inexcusable act of violence. We are a culturally diverse organization with ORL nurses around the globe. The Society of Otorhinolaryngology and Head-Neck Nurses wants to show solidarity with the other medical organizations in denouncing racial injustice and standing for equal rights for all. We ask all members of the Society of Otorhinolaryngology and Head-Neck Nurses to stand together in this endeavor.
