Dear Virginia Orthopaedic Society Members,

We face an uncertain future, with many changes on the horizon.  The environment in which we practice is changing, and VOS continues to fight for what is in the best interests of our patients and all orthopaedic surgeons in the Commonwealth.

2012 Annual MtgOur membership continues to grow.  If you are reading this newsletter, you may not believe it, but some orthopaedic surgeons practicing in Virginia have not yet discovered the benefits of membership.  Our yearly meeting is a high point of the year, and this year promises to be one of our best meetings yet.  Williamsburg is a wonderful venue for a meeting, with plenty of fun and educational opportunities for families.  Drs. Nicole Deal and Andrew Wolff have put together an exciting, clinically relevant program, which I am sure you will enjoy.  Sara Rynders, PA-C, has designed break-out sessions for physician assistants.  I would remind you that PAs are eligible for membership in VOS; if you attend, think about bringing your physician assistants along.  CME credits are available. CLICK HERE to view the program, register for the meeting and make your hotel reservation.

Dr. Hugh Bryan, VOS member and current President of the Medical Society of Virginia, continues to do great work on behalf of all physicians.  Please read his letter in our newsletter, and learn how VOS and MSV work synergistically. 

OrthoPac is the vehicle that helps VOS fight for issues important to us all. In this day and age, it may be the best investment going for Virginian orthopaedic surgeons.  Please engage with the entire VOS Board in supporting OrthoPac. CLICK HERE to contributue.

The staff and Board of VOS continues to do phenomenal, selfless work on behalf of us all.  Thank you to the staff and Board and to all our members for your continued support.
