As part of its 100th anniversary, AAOMS has purchased supplies through Clean the World, a non-governmental organization that recycles hotel hospitality items to reduce waste and repurposes products for under-resourced communities to prevent hygiene-related illnesses. The goal is to make 1,000 kits for donation to South Suburban Family Shelter, which supports victims of domestic violence.

Visit the AAOMS Service Project Booth 2026 during regular exhibition hours Thursday through Saturday at the 2018 Annual Meeting. In less than five minutes, you can assemble a kit and write a note of encouragement to its recipient while engaging in a friendly competition through the AAOMS “Surgeons vs. Staff” game.
