Welcome to the Research and Education Foundation of the American Head and Neck Society

What is the Research and Education Foundation of the American Head and Neck Society?

#FF0000 Raised $2,027,000 towards the $3,000,000 target.

The Research and Education Foundation of the American Head and Neck Society (AHNS) is working to: Encourage and fund science and clinical research in head and neck oncology

  • Support and fund individuals and institutions in the development of educational programs or materials in head and neck cancer
  • Support educational endeavors that improve knowledge, techniques, and skills of practitioners devoted to the care of head and neck cancer patients

The Foundation is the only organization dedicated to treating and curing head and neck cancer. As such, it is a significant force in the fight against head and neck cancer. Our efforts are promising and we have made headway because of the support we receive from AHNS members, individuals affected by head and neck cancer either personally or through a loved one, corporations, and foundations. However, so long as head and neck cancer exists, we must continue our efforts in research, education and treatment. There is more work to be done and we need your help. With several ways to support us, please consider a donation today.

New Way to Donate:  Receiving Honorarium?

Why not consider this unique new way to support the Foundation:  If you are speaking at a conference and receiving honorarium from a company, direct your honorarium to the Research and Education Foundation.  We will handle the process for you.  Simply request the honorarium to be paid out to the Foundation and have the company contact Colleen Elkins, Foundation Director, at Colleen@ahns.info.  In addition, the company, should they chose, will receive recognition of their support on the Foundation website.  It is quick and easy, and a wonderful way to help us grow the Foundation!
