Prevent Injuries America! Resources available to members
As part of AAOS' comprehensive national injury prevention program, Prevent Injuries America!®, members can request pre-written "letters to the editor" that are developed monthly along with news releases on specific injury-related topics. The "letters to the editor" can be customized and mailed to local newspapers with orthopaedic injury prevention messages. Topics on preventing orthopaedic injuries include: Sports injuries to children, baby boomers and older Americans; playground safety; home safety; driving safely; workplace injuries; water sports safety; proper shoewear; and exercise programs. For more information and to receive the boilerplate "letters to the editor," contact public education and media relations specialist, by phone, (847) 384-4032.
