AAOS medical liability campaign builds momentum
The AAOS medical liability reform campaign continues to build momentum. The AAOS has been successful in creating a coalition with other specialty physician groups to pool resources. A steering committee of representatives from the four medical societies that have each made an initial $1 million payment to this effort has met several times over the past few weeks and recently approved a national advocacy program. Also nearing approval is a coordinated public education and media relations campaign. If you have not yet made a contribution to support the campaign, you can still do so. Your personal or corporate check should be sent to: AAOS, 6300 N. River Road, Rosemont, Ill. 60018, Attn: Professional Liability Initiative; credit card donations are also welcome.
