March 1998 AAOS Report

July 1 is deadline for Kappa Delta, OREF awards

July 1 is the deadline for individuals interested in submitting original manuscripts for the 1999 Kappa Delta Awards and the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) Clinical Research Award. Manuscripts for the Kappa Delta Awards should focus on the results of basic or clinical research relating to the musculoskeletal system. The papers also must represent either a large volume or many years of scientific work or describe a single research project of unquestionable significance. The OREF Clinical Research Award will focus on the recognition of outstanding clinical research related directly to musculoskeletal disease or injury. Up to three $20,000 Kappa Delta Awards will be given, one of which is designated for "Young Investigators." The OREF Clinical Research Award also is $20,000. Presentation ceremonies for the award winners will be held during the Academy’s 1999 Annual Meeting in Anaheim, Calif.
