I was fortunate to be a member of the Board for the past three years and participate in the development of the 2020 Strategic Plan, which identified the mission of the society as to advance musculoskeletal research worldwide. An ambitious vision for the ORS 2020 as a world without musculoskeletal limitations has defined key strategies and core values that will guide us in achieving this vision. If elected as the 2nd Vice President and subsequently the President, I would be honored to assure that we adhere to and promote scientific excellence and integrity, foster innovation, instill the culture of collaboration and partnership, act as advocates for orthopedic research and patients with musculoskeletal limitations, and promote diversity of membership and diversity of ideas, initiatives and programming. I would especially be honored to continue great traditions and build upon the accomplishments of former ORS presidents that came from Rush. Furthermore, it would be my honor and one of my key goals to continue the efforts of former women presidents of the ORS of bringing more women to the society, ORS Leadership, and Academic Medicine. I envision the ORS as an international hub for all involved in orthopedic, and more broadly, musculoskeletal research with members from emerging areas of research worldwide joining the society. The ORS should focus on innovative basic and clinical multidisciplinary research, innovative education, and innovative delivery of education across the globe in collaboration with local communities, relevant societies, and regulatory agencies. To accomplish this, we need to nurture our existing sponsorships and seek new and sustainable corporate and industrial sponsors with innovative models of partnership and support. After achieving such goals set for the 2020 vision, the time will come during my presidency to re-assess the state of the society and set the stage for the next 5-years to ensure ORS diversity, vitality, prosperity, and leadership in creating the world without musculoskeletal limitations.
