Orthopaedic Advocacy Week

Orthopaedic Advocacy Week

AAOS leadership, in conjunction with the Office of Government Relations, is hosting a second annual Orthopaedic Advocacy Week from August 1-5, 2022. Similar to the inagugural event in 2021 (see recap infographic), this completely virtual opportunity is designed to offer members simple, minute-long ways to advocate for priority healthcare policy issues. All U.S. AAOS members are encouraged to participate, as we need the engagement of surgeons nationwide to amplify the orthopaedic voice.

Although registration has ended, members can still participate in Orthopaedic Advocacy Week and related daily activities by tabbing across this page.

In this webinar recorded July 12 for the BOC and BOS, AAOS Advocacy Council Chair Douglas Lundy, MD, MBA, FAAOS and staff from the Office of Government Relations preview the goals and activities of Orthopaedic Advocacy Week.

What We're Advocating For...

Orthopaedic surgeons nationwide will seek to advance the following four healthcare policy issues during Orthopaedic Advocacy Week, which can be found in the Advocacy Action Center.
