The FOS Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 10th Annual FOS Injured Worker Inspiration Awards. The FOS Leadership is extremely pleased with the response we have received from the development of these awards. This year's awards will again be presented during the Opening Session of the Workers Compensation Educational Conference hosted by the Workers Compensation Institute. The presentation of the awards during the Opening Session provides an opportunity to highlight our members and the significant impact of musculoskeletal injuries and care in the workers compensation community.


The 2020 FWCI Annual Conference is taking place August 16-19, 2020 at the Marriott World Center in Orlando. For more information on the conference, please visit their website:

Overview of Awards Program:  FOS Members will be asked to send in a brief overview of their most compelling Workers Compensation patient stories of the year using the application form that is available online. The Deadline for submitting your story is May 15, 2020. The Program Committee for the FOS will review all submissions and announce the finalists.The finalists will be recognized during the Opening Session of the FWCI Annual Conference. PLEASE NOTE: Once again we hope to include the injured worker in the recognition during the Opening Session. So once the finalists are selected we will reach out to you to coordinate the inclusion of your patient as well as the surgeon in the Opening Session recognition. The finalists will be asked to make a 10 minute case presentation during the Orthopaedic Breakout Session as part of the WCI Annual Conference. The audience for the Breakout Session primarily consists of case managers and adjusters. The recognition for the awards will be in the form of a plaque and recognition at the conference.
