The Women in Rhinology (WiR) is a Section within the ARS that represents a grassroots effort to provide networking and leadership mentoring for women interested in the care of rhinologic diseases. Towards that goal, events will feature guest speakers on topics such as career, leadership, and strategic planning while providing networking opportunities. Although the mission focuses on women rhinologists, we encourage and invite all ARS members to attend.
