SOMOS and ORS Collaborative Workshop
The ORS 2014 Annual Meeting will include a collaborative workshop, Sunday, March 16, 2014, between SOMOS and ORS: Orthopaedic Combat-Casualty Care: Research Progress and Persistent Gaps after More Than a Decade of Conflict. The ORS 2014 Annual Meeting is immediately following the 2014 AAOS Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
With the continuing cuts in DoD spending, and an economy that remains sluggish, the challenge to get our underfunded/unfunded colleagues in uniform to the meeting is greater than ever. While the DoD, and even industry, are providing some graduate medical education funds to send resident surgeons to the Annual Meeting, a large number of our active duty staff colleagues have no funding at all available to allow them to participate in our society's premier event. These surgeons, many of whom have papers and posters accepted, are unable to attend without our support.
Support our active duty warrior brethren and sisters by offering a tax-deductible donation to SOMOS. These funds will assist our active duty colleagues in making the trip to Scottsdale, AZ for the 2014 Annual Meeting in December. Let us come together and express our gratitude and appreciation for our active duty warriors who continue to serve in harm's way in these challenging times!
COL Brian Allgood Memorial Leadership Award
SOMOS has, through its surgeons deployed around the world, cared for hundreds of thousands of soldiers of many nations, and civilian men, women and children in all walks of life that have been devastated by war or natural disaster.
We have established an award in name of our beloved fallen comrade, COL Brian Allgood, to honor his name and service to our country. This award has been given annually since Brian's death to the military orthopaedic surgeon who, through selfless service to country and dedication to the highest principles of loyalty and integrity, best exemplifies Brian's attributes of leadership and excellence in Military Orthopaedics.
We ask for your support by contributing to the COL Brian Allgood Memorial Leadership Award Fund. Your donation is fully tax deductible, and will be an enormous help in allowing us to reach our goal and honor our fallen comrade.
