Your AAOS—Leading the Way in Improving Orthopaedic Quality
What an exciting, eventful year this has been! Since I assumed the presidency at the 2015 AAOS Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, there's been a whirlwind of activity on multiple fronts. Fortunately, I have had two capable wingmen— first vice-president; and second vice-president—at my side. The AAOS is now well-settled in its new headquarters building in Rosemont, Ill.
Help Build a Safe and Accessible Playground in Orlando
Every day, we orthopaedic surgeons help restore our patients' mobility. We encourage our patients—especially children—to build strong bones for life with exercise and physical activity. For the past 16 years, the Academy has demonstrated our commitment to bone and joint health by donating a Safe and Accessible Playground to the host cities of our Annual Meetings. Safer play structures help prevent children from getting severely injured on the playground.
