The GOS board has opened nominations from membership for the 2017 GOS Jim Funk, M.D., Distinguished Service Award. This award is presented to one who has demonstrated an exemplary commitment to musculoskeletal-focused humanitarian activities and contributed significantly to improving the practice of Orthopaedic surgery. Nominees do NOT have to be GOS members nor do they have to be Orthopaedic surgeons. The nominee should simply meet the above criteria and be worthy of this distinguished service award.
When submitting your nomination, please provide a brief narrative as to why you believe your nominee deserves this award. Please make your nominations soon as they will no longer be accepted for the 2017 award after July 1, 2017. The Award will be presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Georgia Orthopaedic Society (October 5-8, 2017). It will be the 72nd anniversary so please save the date on your calendars!
