AAOS Now, June 2020
AAOS Responds to COVID-19 Pandemic, Makes Progress on 2020 Goals
The AAOS Board of Directors did not have a playbook at the ready specifically designed to address a global pandemic and a stoppage of elective surgeries, but we did spend the better part of the past two years focused on how to approach strategic thinking and planning.
'We Stand with You’
Anyone who has seen the graphic video of George Floyd being pinned down and suffocated by a Minneapolis police officer cannot help but be horrified. There is no justification for this violence. The Academy respects the lives of every person regardless of race, religion, gender, creed, or sexual orientation, and we strongly condemn what has recently occurred.
MORE Awards Honor Excellence in Orthopaedic Reporting
Every year, through its Media Orthopaedic Reporting Excellence (MORE) Awards, AAOS honors journalists who help provide the public with an understanding of musculoskeletal health issues and encourage bone and joint care.
