- On January 5, 2018 our esteemed colleague, Dr. Eduardo (Eddie) Méndez lost his courageous two and a half year fight against cancer. Eddie dedicated his entire career to the treatment of Head and Neck cancer, and he improved the lives of countless patients with head and neck cancer through his surgical abilities and his research advances.
As a leader in the AHNS, Eddie served as the Co-Chair of the Diversity Task Force. Upon learning of the Myers’ Family generous gift to establish the Myers Family Summer Diversity Fellowship, Eddie initiated a campaign to establish a second fellowship. Upon his passing, the AHNS and Foundation leadership dedicated the second fellowship in Eddie’s honor by naming it the Eduardo Méndez Diversity Summer Fellowship.
The goal of the campaign is establish a fund within the Foundation, the annual proceeds from this fund will support a fellowship for a medical student to spend a summer under the mentorship of an AHNS member. The intention of the Fellowship is to encourage medical students from diverse backgrounds to pursue careers as head and neck cancer surgeons.
