New laryngological association secures Stephen Hawking as speaker

The British Laryngological Association (BLA) has secured Professor Stephen Hawking to speak at its first annual meeting on 5 December at the Royal Society of Medicine in London.

The world-famous, inspirational Professor Hawking will be presenting a lecture on his experience as a patient and his hopes for the new multi-disciplinary association, the BLA.

The BLA is a brand new membership society which aims to achieve advancement in laryngology through research, education and training for the benefit of the public.

The association aims to promote all medical, surgical and rehabilitative aspects of laryngology and hold meetings at which those interested in laryngology may meet, discuss clinical practice and present clinical and basic scientific research.

David Howard, President of the BLA said, "We are delighted that Professor Hawking has agreed to present at our first Meeting. His involvement demonstrates how needed the brand-new BLA is within the healthcare field. Its aim of delivering multi-disciplinary research will benefit patients with a broad spectrum of needs."

Members of the BLA are invited to register to attend the meeting, free of charge.
The BLA would like to thank their Founding Corporate Partners, Acclarent, Merz, Olympus and Pentax Medical for their support in their first year of operation.

The association has raised in excess of £50,000 in sponsorship with the help of PCO Kenes, as exclusively revealed by Association Event Planner.
