Our Story

The Thread that Runs through AOSSM

I have always loved AOSSM. I’ve found it to be like a second family. It’s a group of people with similar interests and motivations. I’ve been able to develop some amazing relationships.”

Carolyn M. Hettrich, MD, MPH
Chair, Early Career Engagement Committee

AOSSM is unique—I am learning from this group what to do and how to do it better and advancing care for my patients. And I know AOSSM will advocate for my ability to do so in the way I feel is best. That’s how it was formed. Not every orthopaedic surgeon understands the nuances of athletic care, let alone lawmakers. Here we have a group here that’s willing to teach and learn, but also advocate and support.”
