OMS Foundation Alliance A message from the Alliance Committee Chair

In these ever-changing times, building bridges between new OMS families and our AAOMS community is so important. I am honored to be the chair of the OMS Alliance 2022-23 Committee, whose mission has focused on creating those bridges for 28 years.  

I was thrilled to see a capacity crowd at our Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE at GW Fins in New Orleans, where we welcomed our 2022 Kelly Scholarship families, reunited with old friends and delighted in new connections amidst New Orleans’ unforgettable ambiance.  Our daily Health Walks offered a scenic, social opportunity to walk along the Mississippi River as we made our way to fabulous, healthy breakfasts in the Historic French Market at Meals from the Heart.  It's not too late to walk with us virtually, at a time and place of your choosing. Registration is free, but please do register! Your optional donations directly support the Global Initiative for Volunteerism and Education (GIVE) and are deeply appreciated.  

Cheers to continuing to build the bridges within our community! Stay well and thank you for supporting the Alliance! 

Stacy Erickson, Chair 
2022-23 Alliance Committee

Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE

The 2022 Alliance Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE was held at the renowned GW Fins! This unforgettable New Orleans experience featured food by award-winning chef Michael Nelson, and an engaging first-hand account of Dr. Adam Abel's 2022 humanitarian experience with GIVE.  We also heard a presentation by NOLA's favorite hurricane expert, Bob Breck!

As always, proceeds support GIVE, offering travel stipends to OMS residents serving with international humanitarian healthcare teams.

2022 Health Walks for GIVE

Our New Orleans Health Walks consisted of enjoyable walks along the Mississippi River, ending at the historic French Market for delicious breakfasts at Meals from the Heart.
