Plan to attend Town Hall Meeting
A highlight of the 2006 Annual Meeting will be the Town Hall Meeting on Friday, March 24 at 10:45 a.m. immediately following the Annual Business Meetings in the McCormick Place Grand Ballroom. The Presidential Line—Stuart L. Weinstein, MD, president; Richard F. Kyle, MD, first vice president; and James H. Beaty, MD, second vice president—and moderator Robert H. Haralson III, MD, executive director of medical affairs, will be on hand to respond to your concerns. The Town Hall Meeting is your chance to stand up and speak out on critical issues affecting you and your practice or to ask AAOS leaders about any concerns you may have.
Among the topics that will undoubtedly be discussed are gainsharing (the cover story in the February Bulletin), Medicare payments, medical liability reform and expert witness issues. Plan on stepping up to the open mike and sharing your opinions and ideas in a lively interaction with your colleagues and Academy leadership.
