Spread the Health and Help the Homeless
WHO: We invite you to join AAOMS and Clean the World, a non-governmental organization that recycles hotel hospitality items, to reduce waste and repurpose products for under-resourced communities to prevent hygiene-related illnesses.
WHAT: A special project to assemble 1,000 ONE Project hygiene kits for donation to a San Francisco-area program that helps domestic violence victims. In less than five minutes, you can assemble a kit and write a note of encouragement to its recipient.
WHERE: During regular exhibition hours Thursday through Saturday at the 2017 Annual Meeting at Booth 2026.
WHY: ONE Project hygiene kits help struggling individuals and families who might not otherwise have access to essential personal hygiene items. Because “One Kit for One Individual Can Change One Life.”
All meeting attendees will be given the opportunity to spend a few short minutes building kits in the AAOMS exhibit hall, while also engaging in a little friendly competition as part of the AAOMS “Surgeons vs. Staff” game.
