Orthopaedists to focus on aging patient

Orthopaedic surgeons with a special interest in geriatrics or those who want to learn more about the aging patient are invited to attend a breakfast meeting, Friday, March 20, 7 to 8 a.m., Room MR3, at the Annual Meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss areas of common interest and to explore the possibility of establishing a shared interest group open to Academy members. "The Academy’s work in this area over the past three years has surfaced much interest and expertise," said former Academy president James W. Strickland, MD, meeting chairman. "The American Geriatrics Society has complimented the Academy on all we have accomplished so far, and have made an additional grant to fund this meeting." To register, contact Mark W. Wieting, vice president, AAOS, education programs, (800) 346-2267, ext. 4121 or by e-mail, wieting@aaos.org.
