Amplify Across Social Media

On the first day of 2023 Orthopaedic Advocacy Week, we raised awareness around the five key healthcare policy issues on social media. This was a critical step to building support for AAOS-supported legislation and capturing the attention of lawmakers.

Although the event has ended, you can still download the social media toolkits below which contain AAOS-branded graphics and sample posts to amplify the orthopaedic voice!

More on Social Media

Social media offers a more public way for AAOS members to amplify healthcare policy issues, press lawmakers for solutions, and build awareness around the power of advocacy among their peers. In fact, many congressional offices closely monitor these platforms for constituent concerns and association campaigns such as Orthopaedic Advocacy Week. You can use the hashtag #OrthoAdvocacyinAction all year-long to post about critical issues and elevate conversations on advancing access to quality musculoskeletal care.

Also, be sure to follow the AAOS on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram for advocacy news and updates throughout the year.
