AAOS donates $50,000 to Haitian relief efforts

Four organizations will share funds

In recognition of the tireless commitment made by hundreds of AAOS members in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in Haiti earlier this year, the Board of Directors of the AAOS authorized donations totaling $50,000 to four organizations that deliver orthopaedic-related patient care and relief. Handicap International, the International Medical Corps (IMC), Partners in Health (PIH), and the Surgical Implant Generation Network (SIGN) each received $12,500 in support of their efforts.

“These funds recognize the work these organizations are doing and our desire to help them achieve their long-term plans in Haiti,” said AAOS President John J. Callaghan, MD. “We are proud to be able to provide some assistance in support of their efforts.”
