Thank you to our partners and donors who made the 2015 AORN Surgical Conference & Expo a huge success for the AORN Foundation. It was an amazing week that energized the AORN members, staff, and community.
The Foundation was featured throughout the Conference with several great events that got attendees dancing and moving, including the Gold Rush Party & Benefit, Race for Patient Safety 5K run/3K walk, and Zumba fitness class. Tuesday of the Conference was designated as AORN Foundation Day to recognize the Foundation’s commitment to the perioperative profession and dedication to the mission to promote patient safety.
Through support from industry partners, events, and donations received at the booth from both individuals and chapters, the Foundation raised approximately $200,000. Industry support included sponsorships to underwrite the events and funding to provide professional development grants to recipients to attend the Conference. The funds raised support the Foundation’s professional development grants and academic scholarships, plus clinical practice tools and resources.
A special thank-you to our corporate partners who supported the 2015 AORN Surgical Conference & Expo.
