First Annual Smith Family Lecture
Opening Ceremony - November 20, 2019
Several new traditions were added to ICEOS 2019 this year. The first was an opening ceremony following the ICEOS pre-course. This allowed us to thank and emphasize the importance of support from our Industry sponsors.
John and Melissa Smith have endowed a new annual lectureship to be given at the opening ceremony. Many of our members have done incredible things outside of Orthopedics and Neurosurgery. The only rule for this lectureship is that it can’t be about medicine.
The 2019 Smith Family Lecture was given by Dr. Doug Brockmeyer. The topic was “Climbing Mount Everest”. His fantastic talk and pictures were inspirational and enjoyed by all.
