AAOS joins baseball trainers society in campaign to prevent injuries

The AAOS's new Prevent Injuries America! initiative is underway, in partnership with Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS), and features baseball star Cal Ripken. In addition to a media tour, this program includes an electronic brochure on preventing sports injuries. It is linked to the AAOS and PBATS web sites; it includes a radio Public Service Announcement (PSA) and a Video News Release featuring Ripken; and a print PSA that has been produced as a poster. Limited quantities of the Ripken poster are available for a small shipping and handling charge. Visit the Public/Media Relations section of the AAOS web site at to view the electronic brochure, and to print a faxable Ripken poster order form.
