We look forward to the culmination of Chris Lebrun's (2007) term as President of SOMOS at the PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach, FL, from 17-20 December 2019. Tom Dowd (2010) and Andy Sheean (2017), Scientific Co-Chairs, have put together another high-yield program that highlights the academic excellence of military orthopaedic surgery. SAMMC residents, faculty and alumni will be presenting 21 studies at the podium in addition to Chris's farewell address. Go to somos.org for meeting information; SAMMCAA presentations can be foundhere. We hope to see you there.
