Due to the cancellation of this year’s annual AANA/SOMOS Course as a result of COVID-19 impacts and restricted travel, original grant funds generously provided by The Brown Foundation have been repurposed into scholarships for military surgeons to attend an upcoming AANA Lab Course.
Scholarships can be applied towards AANA’s Knee & Shoulder Course or Hip Course scheduled for later this year. Each scholarship will cover the course registration fee up to $1,999 and $500 for travel expenses.
This alternate plan was developed in consultation with AANA Past President and SOMOS Course Founder Richard K.N. Ryu, M.D., the Browns’ long-time family friend, to ensure The Brown Foundation’s goal to help the dedicated service men and women of our country remains a top priority.
Special thanks to The Brown Foundation and Dr. Ryu for making it possible for The AANA Education Foundation to honor and assist our military service members.
Applications are open to military-affiliated Orthopaedic Surgeons only – submit an application today!
