The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Foundation (OMS Foundation) is a 501(c)(3) organization, incorporated in 1959 as the philanthropic wing of the OMS specialty. The OMS Foundation is dedicated to advancing the long-term development, health and well-being of the specialty and the public it serves through financial support of research and education consistent with the goals of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS). We are proud to have given more than $11 million to the specialty in research awards, fellowships and specialty-focused projects. OMS Foundation-supported research awards and fellowships are shaping the future of the specialty.
The OMS Foundation is excited to announce its first ever Online Auction! It will take the place of the Silent Auction, normally held during the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS). Online bidding stations will be available to attendees at the 94th AAOMS Annual Meeting on September 12-15, 2012 in San Diego, California at the OMS Foundation booth in the Membership Pavilion. You can also view all auction items online and conveniently bid from your office, home or wherever you like! Items include surgical materials, continuing education items, meeting registration, and tickets to social events.
The OMS Foundation Online Auction is open to bidders before the AAOMS Annual Meeting, so you can start your bidding early! The Online Auction begins on August 28, 2012 and closes on September 15, 2012 at 12 noon Pacific Time. To view a downloadable Online Auction brochure with listed items, visit the OMS Foundation website at www.omsfoundation.org.
