Celebrating 80 Years Of Service!

The American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA) represents over 2,700 Board-certified otolaryngologists and health care providers. Otolaryngology, frequently referred to as Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT), uniquely combines medical and surgical expertise to care for patients with a variety of conditions affecting the ears, nose, and throat, as well as commonly related conditions. AAOA members devote part of their practice to the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disease. The AAOA actively supports its membership through education, research, and advocacy in the care of allergic patients.

"Advance the comprehensive management of allergy and inflammatory disease in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery through training, education, and advocacy."

Airports & Ground Transportation

The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch is 12 miles and, depending on time of day and traffic, about 30-40 minutes from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX).

The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch

Nestled between the dramatic beauty of the pristine Sonoran Desert and the burgeoning shopping, restaurant, gallery and club scene of Scottsdale, the resort is an oasis in the desert. The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch captures the elegance of historic haciendas of the past, provides a residential ambiance, and offers welcoming outdoor spaces.

Outdoor function space is the springboard for this fresh approach to learning and networking outside the classroom. It is said that the average meeting is two to three days long and the average attention span is eight seconds. Reconnecting with nature has been proven to benefit the mind, body, and spirit and allows significant memory imprints and connection of ideas. Expect fun networking to get to know each other on a more personal level, and relaxing outdoor sessions and transitions for renewal throughout the meeting.
