Otolaryngology, COVID-19


Greetings of peace and good health!


I would like to commend the Editorial Staff of the Philippine Journal of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery for this latest issue of our bi-annual publication headed by its Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Jose Florencio F. Lapeña, Jr. The Philippine Society of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery (PSO-HNS) is grateful for your tireless efforts in making this internationally recognized publication a great repository of research data in our field of specialty.


COVID-19 has changed the way we do almost everything. This global pandemic has presented a variety of challenges in all aspects of our lives and careers and the effects have lingered on more than a year after it started. The researchers and educators in our training institutions face a multitude of challenges unique to this current situation. The PSO-HNS is one with them in hoping that we can still come up with information useful in our field of specialty. May we all see opportunities for academic research improvement despite these challenges.
