We Save Lives

Through prevention, early detection, and research of head and neck cancer.

In Honor of Jerome Goldstein, MD

HNCA is saddened to learn of the passing of Jerome Goldstein, MD. Dr. Goldstein spent his life and career in service to others, from his work in medicine to his leadership roles in organizations such as the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS), the Triological Society, the American Board of Otolaryngology, and the American Society for Head and Neck Surgery. Dr. Goldstein was the inaugural chairman of the board of the Yul Brynner Foundation upon its establishment in 1984. Today, we are reminded of his spirit of service to cancer patients, and we remain dedicated to carrying on the important work of the organization he helped to found.
