9th Annual Injured Worker Inspiration Awards

Submission Deadline April 30, 2019

The FOS Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 9th 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.
Below is the text of the overview for the awards that we have included in the program for the FWCI Annual Conference:
The Injured Worker Inspiration (IWI) Awards were created to recognize the achievements of injured workers and their musculoskeletal physicians. Highlighting this year's most compelling stories of medical innovation and the conquering nature of the human spirit, these case presentations will both inspire and educate. Please join us as we celebrate the achievements of these remarkable patients and recognize the advances of musculoskeletal science.
The 2019 FWCI Annual Conference is taking place August 11-14, 2019 at the Marriott World Center in Orlando. For more information on the conference, please visit their website:
