Letter from the President
I am honored to have been selected to serve as your president for 2017. I have been a member of the New Jersey Orthopaedic Society for many years, and have been privileged to represent you on the Board of Directors in a variety of leadership positions. I am very familiar with the initiatives, goals and mission of the NJOS, and am proud of our efforts to serve the orthopaedic surgeons in our State.
We have an extremely effective (and busy) advocacy program – led by stellar health care counsel, Mark Manigan, Esq., and our executive director and lobbyist, AJ Sabath – tracking and monitoring hundreds of bills in Trenton, and working with administration officials on the hottest issues facing the profession – out of network and other reimbursement issues, assignment of benefits, attacks on the state’s ambulatory surgery centers, etc. The issues continue to pop and our team continues to put out fires and advance proactive initiatives. Our state advocacy program is one of the nation’s best (and recognized by the AAOS for our aggressive nature), and our top priority as an association. We have to have good people watching our backs in the State Capitol so we can continue to practice and provide the best health care possible for our patients.
Our annual meeting and other educational programs are well recognized for their outstanding speakers and timely topics. We welcome your attendance, participation and suggestions so we can continue to meet your educational needs.
And please don’t hesitate to contact me with anything that’s on your mind. Again, I am privileged to serve you this year as your president, and welcome your input and active participation as we advance our advocacy and education agenda. Our Trenton office staff, administrated so effectively by Rachel Holland (firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-392-7553) can assist with your questions as well.
