Deadline approaches for AAOS Diversity Award nominations
The Diversity Award, approved by the AAOS Board of Directors at its May 2002 meeting, was established to recognize an Academy Fellow who has significantly contributed to advancing diversity in orthopaedics through recruiting, mentoring, leadership and treatment of diverse populations. This prestigious award will be presented for the first time on Feb. 5, 2003 during the Opening Ceremony of the AAOS Annual Meeting in New Orleans. Any Academy Fellow in good standing may be nominated. The deadline for submitting nominations-Nov. 15, 2002- is rapidly approaching.
