The AAOS, the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS), and the Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons (ABJS) are hosting the first ever research symposium to focus exclusively on disparities in musculoskeletal health care. The AAOS/ORS/ABJS Musculoskeletal Healthcare Disparities Research Symposium (MHD) will take place May 6–7, 2010, in Alexandria, Virginia.

Cochaired by Mary O’Connor, MD; Charles Nelson, MD; and Carlos Lavernia, MD, the MHD symposium will include a forum of experts from multiple disciplines. The symposium will focus on defining and outlining gender and ethnic musculoskeletal health care disparities in joint replacement, pain management, osteoporosis and fragility fractures, and diabetic foot management and amputation, based on current knowledge.
