The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons seeks war injury related art
ROSEMONT, Ill., June 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons:
WHAT: Wartime experiences not only affect the military personnel and their loved ones, but the physicians and medical teams who treat them. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has opened a call for entries to a unique, juried art exhibition: Wounded in Action: An Art Exhibition of Orthopaedic Advancements, as a tribute to injured troops and families, civilians and the orthopaedic surgeons who are caring and have cared for them.

This exhibition also recognizes those orthopaedic surgeons who, throughout history, have risked their own safety to care for our troops, to save lives and limbs, to advance medical treatments, and to conduct research and learn from war in order to better serve those who sustain orthopaedic trauma.
WHO: This exhibit is open to artists in three categories:
WHEN: Submissions now being accepted through October 15, 2009.
