First In-Person AOFAS Meeting Since Start of Pandemic

Updated: Oct 27, 2021

Attendees of the American Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) Annual Meeting 2021 filled the Charlotte Convention Center in North Carolina this past weekend – for the first in-person meeting since Covid hit the US.

No hitches

Initial post-conference feedback has been overwhelmingly positive for the meeting, which saw the installation of the organization's new president, Dr. Christopher W. DiGiovanni, MD.

According to the AOFAS, Dr. DiGiovanni aspires to strengthen the society's strategic priorities, including enhancing mentorship and international exchange, continuing to give voice to the diversity of members within the AOFAS and preventing burnout for the next generation surgeons.


Another meeting, and another job well-done for Executive Director Elaine Leighton, MPH, CAE, and the entire AOFAS team. Next year's meeting is scheduled for Quebec, Canada.
