Own the Bone Program Partners
The AOA welcomes involvement from Not-for-Profit organizations as Own the Bone Organizational Alliance members and program supporters. Not-for-Profit organizations wishing to participate as a member of the Organizational Alliance contribute in-kind resources to educational or communication initiatives tied to Own the Bone's central mission of identifying, evaluating and treating patients with osteoporotic-related fragility fractures.
The Own the Bone Educational Alliance allows for and recognizes organizations who desire to make a significant impact to physician and patient education in conjunction with Own the Bone. This impact can be made in a variety of ways, including but not limited to, financial and educational support for Own the Bone and significant educational initiatives conducted in concert with the Own the Bone program.
The AOA offers opportunities for organizations to be involved in and support the AOA's Own the Bone program.
The AOA recently became a partner with Project ECHO®
(Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes). Beginning in spring 2019, the AOA and its Own the Bone program will be launching the nation's first orthopaedic-focused teleECHO program. Participating clinicians will convene via monthly videoconferencing sessions to enhance knowledge and skills through expert-led lectures and interactive case presentations.
