A Message from the OMS Foundation Alliance Chair

For 30 years, the OMS Foundation Alliance has helped reunite old friends and welcome new families to the AAOMS community with fellowship, food and fun. With OMSNIC’s support, our Norma L. Kelly Resident Spouse Scholarships help spouses of OMS residents attend the AAOMS Annual Meeting where they are VIPs at all Alliance events. The Alliance Committee is planning our best year yet in Orlando, and we look forward to welcoming everyone with open arms.

Thank you to all who attended the 2023 Health Walks and the Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE in San Diego. Together with the generous support of our event partners, attendees raised enough to pay for SIX GIVE STIPENDS next year! These Global Initiative for Volunteerism and Education stipends will be granted to residents traveling internationally to deliver humanitarian healthcare to underserved populations; a truly life-changing experience for all involved.

Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE

Our 2023 Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE, held at San Diego's Brigantine Seafood & Oyster Bar, was a roaring success. In our ballroom overlooking the San Diego Bay, we welcomed new AAOMS families, reconnected with longtime friends, savored an unforgettable meal, and enjoyed an engaging first-hand account of a GIVE Scholarship recipient's 2023 humanitarian experience. 

Please enjoy the photos! We can't wait to see you all in Orlando during the 2024 AAOMS Annual Meeting!

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

2023 Health Walks for GIVE

Our 2023 Health Walks took us on a beautiful morning stroll along the San Diego Bay, ending at a nearby restaurant for delicious breakfasts and networking.

The Off-site option is available year-round: register below and then walk at a time/place of your choosing!
