Dr Andrew Manning VP CAO
Conference Chairman CAO Conference 2019
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is my pleasure to welcome you , on behalf of the organising committee to Kingston Jamaica for the 27th Annual Scientific Conference of the Caribbean Association of Otolaryngologists.
The theme of this years conference is ‘ENT in the Caribbean Past Present and Future’. This theme is topical as new developments in Otolaryngology are coming on stream at an ever increasing pace. Keeping up with these new developments can be a challenge; the CAO annual scientific conference has always afforded attendees the opportunity to learn about some of these new developments in an academic yet fraternal (and sororal!) atmosphere. In truth the CAO has since its inception played an important role in the introduction of new techniques and ideas into the practice of ENT in the Caribbean.
We have a schedule planned with speakers, some experts in their in fields, from all over the globe. As usual we also have a social programme designed to give delegates and their companions a taste of Kingston.
Kingston , the capital of Jamaica , is the largest city in the English speaking Caribbean. A port city Kingston boasts the seventh largest natural harbor in the world. Although not primarily known as a tourist destination Kingston has a lot to offer visitors. Attractions include the Bob Marley Museum, and Historic Devon House .Those UWI alumni among you ,will also get a chance to reminisce at the University of the West Indies Mona Campus.
So, once again welcome to Kingston! Hope you enjoy the conference and also enjoy some ‘Fun in the Sun!!’
