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 Committee, whose mission has focused on creating those bridges for 28 years.  

I hope to see you at our Alliance events in New Orleans! Ticketing has closed for our Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE on Sept. 15, 2022, where we’ll welcome our Kelly Scholarship families, reunite with old friends and delight in new connections amidst New Orleans’ unforgettable ambiance.  Don’t miss our daily Health Walks, offering a scenic, social opportunity to explore this vibrant city with friends and colleagues. If you are unable to join us in person, we invite you to walk with us virtually, at a time and place of your choosing. Registration for either option is free, but please do register! Your 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!
