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 2022-23 OMS Foundation Alliance Committee, whose mission has focused on creating those bridges for 29 years.  

Alliance Events enjoyed an incredible turnout at the 2022 AAOMS Annual Meeting. I was thrilled to see a capacity crowd at our Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE, and our daily Health Walks offered a scenic, social opportunity to walk along the Mississippi River and finish at a fabulous, healthy breakfast at Meals from the Heart.

I look forward to the 2023 AAOMS Annual Meeting and more opportunities to welcome residents and their spouses into our AAOMS community in this, the 15th year of the Norma L. Kelly Resident Spouse Scholarship!  As we finalize negotiations with restaurants, I can tell you that the 2023 Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE will be one for the books!

All Alliance events directly support the Global Initiative for Volunteerism and Education (GIVE) and donations at any time of year are deeply appreciated.  

Cheers to continuing to build bridges within our community!  Thank you for supporting the Alliance! 

Stacy Erickson, Chair 
2022-23 Alliance Committee

Until then, we'll look at these photos and remember the fabulous experience that was the 2022 Alliance Luncheon and FUNraiser for GIVE, held at the renowned GW Fins in New Orleans.

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