The Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation is on its way to reaching its 1996 Annual Campaign goal of $4.45 million in 1996. To date, more than 800 individuals have contributed $2.53 million dollars to OREF. This is an increase of contributors from 1995. The OREF Board of Trustees would like to thank those people who have generously contributed to the 1996 Annual Campaign, and are encouraging those individuals who have not to consider donating to help orthopaedic research efforts. Orthopaedic research helps the entire society. For more information, contact OREF, (847) 698-9980.
