October 2000 AAOS Report

Members to show art, build playground at 2001 Annual Meeting

Several major events at the 2001 Annual Meeting call for member involvement. The eMotion Pictures: An Exhibition of Orthopaedics in Art will tell the story of musculoskeletal conditions through the artwork and stories of orthopaedic surgeons and their patients. On Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2001, the day before the start of the Annual Meeting, work on the safe, accessible playground will begin. The project depends on volunteers. To offer your help, log on or request a sign-up form through the AAOS Fax-on-Demand system, (800) 999-2939.

The Community Orthopaedic Awareness Program will offer five public education presentations for orthopaedic surgeons to use in their communities. Orthopaedic surgeons will receive "how to" guides, including public information techniques and sample Letters to the Editor. The Hometown Radio project will give orthopaedic surgeons the chance to do an interview with a correspondent. The interviews are edited and transmitted by digital phone feed to stations in the physicians' hometown or state. Call Addy Kujawa in the Public and Media Relations department at (847) 384-4032 to schedule a 15-minute slot. Limited time slots are available during the meeting on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
