The Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) hosted an open house June 29, 2011, at AAOS headquarters in Rosemont to thank Gene R. Wurth for his service as the foundation’s chief executive officer from September 2000 through June 2011, and to celebrate milestones achieved during his tenure.

“Gene Wurth guided OREF through some rough waters and leaves it poised for further growth,” said William P. Cooney III, MD, past president of OREF’s board of trustees. “We appreciate all Gene’s efforts and wish him well.” Mr. Wurth has accepted the position of executive director of the American Dental Association Foundation in Chicago.
