AAOS issues call for MORE Award nominations
The AAOS encourages members to nominate news stories for the second annual Media Orthopaedic Reporting Excellence (MORE) Awards. The MORE Awards are presented to journalists who help increase the public’s understanding of musculoskeletal health-related issues and encourage healthy behaviors in the care of bones, joints and muscles. The awards will be presented at the AAOS National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C., in May 2007.
Members can nominate journalists or freelance writers/editors in three categories of print and broadcast media (consumer print journalism, broadcast journalism, and trade print publications). The entries must be published between June 1, 2005, and Oct. 1, 2006. Entries must be received on or before Oct. 31, 2006 and must be accompanied by an official entry form or photocopy. Entries, entry forms and supporting materials should be submitted to: AAOS, Public Relations Department, 6300 N. River Road, Rosemont, Ill. 60018. For more information, visit www.aaos.org/moreawards
