AAOS Act of 2009: A top priority for NOLC visits

By Nick Piatek

When attendees of the 2009 National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference (NOLC) went to visit their Congressional representatives, they took the opportunity to promote the “Access to America’s Orthopaedic Services (AAOS) Act of 2009.” The proposal is aimed at improving research, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal diseases, conditions, and injuries.

“As the experts in a vitally important field, orthopaedic surgeons command a lot of respect when they call for more awareness,” said AAOS President Joseph D. Zuckerman, MD. “This bill will increase awareness of musculoskeletal health issues and provide the opportunity for the AAOS to serve as an authoritative source of knowledge and leadership.”
