The 2009 MidWinter Meeting will be held at the Mariott Town Center Hotel in Charleston on Saturday, February 7, 2009. We anticipate good weather and a large contingent of members attending.
The program is co-sponsored by the CAMC Health Education and Research Institute. Our format is similar to that which has been done in previous years, and our theme is “Orthopedic Trauma in WV: What to treat, how to treat (temporary and definitive), and when to transfer to the Trauma Center.” Please bring interesting trauma cases for discussion with the films on CDs saved to run on PowerPoint 2003.
The West Virginia Association of Orthopaedic Executives will have a separate meeting including a discussion of PQRI.
I hope you will make an effort to attend our meeting this year. Tony Majestro, Bill Sale and Jack Steel have created an excellent program of selected topics for our West Virginia Orthopaedic Society members. If you have any questions, please contact the WVOS office at 304.984.0308. Please register online or send your registration form and payment by January 30, 2009, to:
