Corporate partnerships with OREF continue to expand

By Judy Sherr

Through the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) Corporate Associates Program, companies are able to support quality research while demonstrating their leadership within the orthopaedic community.

The Corporate Associates Program is a significant component of OREF, accounting for more than $15 million in support of OREF, AAOS, and specialty orthopaedic organization research and educational projects in the last three years. Of this support, $1.4 million was specifically earmarked for OREF funding. The OREF gratefully acknowledges each of these distinguished corporate partners for demonstrating their commitment to the orthopaedic profession.

OREF values its relationship with industry and continues to partner with companies to fund initiatives that result in improved diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and disorders. OREF’s 2006 Corporate Associates include:
