A Message From the Otolaryngology SPG Co-Chairs

Maria Colandrea

Welcome to the new AANP Otolaryngology SPG! I am an otolaryngology NP at the Durham Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, practicing in general otolaryngology since 2012. I have contributed to the publication of two Clinical Practice Guidelines from the American Academy of Otolaryngology on Meniere’s disease and adult patients with a neck mass. My practice focuses on general outpatient otolaryngology. I am honored to co-chair this new group and look forward to collaborating with other otolaryngology NPs throughout the nation.
