The recent COVID-19 pandemic has brought the US economy to a standstill. The pain has extended to otolaryngology practices, many of whom have reduced hours or temporarily closed. Fortunately, the recent passing of the CARES Act brings some much-needed help for practices in this time of crisis. 

To help practices understand how all the programs work, their applicability to practices, and what is needed to access them, Earlens announced that it co-hosted a webinar, “Protecting Your Practice in an Uncertain Time: CARES Act Programs and More,” in conjunction with Thomas M. Krummel, MD, FACS/FAAP (Chairman Department of Surgery at Stanford University 1998-2015) and Lauren Horneffer (Associate in King & Spalding’s Special Matters and Government Investigations Practice). 

According to Earlens, the webinar draws on the company’s access to law firms and medical-device lobbying organizations to help ENT practices clearly understand the new bill, what program(s) are most applicable, and how to apply for them quickly. Webinar participants also received access to additional downloadable resources, including: 

  • Paycheck Protection Program Overview, Borrower Information Fact Sheet, and Application 
  • Paycheck Protection Program Loan Calculator 
  • Comparison of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Economic Injury and Disaster (EIDL) Grants 
  • CARES Act FAQ 

The webinar is hosted by: Bill Facteau (President and Chief Executive Officer, Earlens), J. Connon Samuel (Chief Operating Officer, Earlens), Bernard Shay, (General Counsel, Earlens), Thomas M. Krummel, and Lauren Horneffer.
