The MORE Awards are designed to recognize journalists whose work helps us serve the public this way," explained Joseph Zuckerman, M.D., president of AAOS. "The MORE Awards were created to recognize the members of the media whose thoughtful, strategic and well-researched work accurately highlights orthopaedic-related issues and medical advancements."
