November 21, 2023
Dear ASES Member:
I am reaching out to you as Chairman of The ASES Foundation as we open our foundation’s 2023 Year-End Appeal. My goal has been to help enable The ASES Foundation’s new mission,
“To develop and provide resources to advance shoulder and elbow care.”
Your giving supports critical foundation programs and research. If you have given in the past, please accept our most sincere thanks for your generosity in supporting our foundation programs including.
Fellowship Education Grants
Exchange Fellowship Program
National Shoulder and Elbow Week
Trends in Shoulder Arthroplasty Report
Candidate Research Grants
These programs are impactful, maybe even to you, your residents, or fellows, but they require annual financial support and collective giving from all ASES members. Here are two stories of the impact of The ASES Foundation’s funded Fellowship Exchange Program:
“The ASES Exchange Fellowship was critical to my future success as a shoulder and elbow surgeon. Those early visits led to long-lasting friendships that have significantly impacted my life and career.” William N. Levine, MD
“I’m very proud of the fact that I was one of the first members of the ASES of Indian descent. And through the sponsorship and diversity programs, that are funded by the ASES Foundation, we’re now able to provide to people around the world experiences and educational opportunities similar to what I have.” Sumant G. Krishnan, MD
“The ability to broaden your perspective and see that people think differently about shoulder and elbow problems, in different parts of the world, was really eye-opening to me.” Thomas (Quin) Throckmorton, MD
“It was truly an honour to meet with world renowned shoulder and elbow specialists to learn from their techniques and take away “tips and pearls” from their years of experience and wisdom.” April D. Armstrong, MD
