The Thomas A. Brady Award recognizes the service and dedication to sports medicine of those individuals who have made a mark on their local community.  Since 1999, the award has been given to an orthopaedic surgeon who has been dedicated to excellence in sports medicine on a local level, with local athletes. The final selection of the recipient of this award is made by the Council of Delegates’ Executive Committee, based upon nominations received from members of the Council. Delegates may nominate only one individual per year, and may solicit their state constituents for nominations.
