A message from William R. Taylor, MD, SOLAS Board President:

Dear Colleagues,

As SOLAS’ corporate support program enters its second year, it expands the sponsorship portfolio and increases overall support enabling SOLAS to expand educational opportunities. On behalf of the SOLAS Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the 2019 Alliance Partners.

Renewing Alliance Partners

Globus Medical renewed their Alliance Partnership for a second year. Additionally, they have expanded their overall support to include hosting a lunch symposium and sponsoring the optional cadaver course at the annual meeting. In the coming months, SOLAS will be announcing a research project with Globus Medical.

Also renewing their Alliance Partnership for 2019, and expanding their support, is Zimmer Biomet. Zimmer Biomet will be sponsoring a cadaver station at this year’s 12th Annual SOLAS Meeting.

New Alliance Partners

Medtronic joins SOLAS’ Partnership program and provides additional support by hosting a lunch symposium and sponsoring two cadaver stations in the 2019 cadaveric course.

K2M has also joined SOLAS' program as an Alliance Partner. Their introductory year will include utilizing the many opportunities to engage with SOLAS members.

Expanding the corporate support program is important for SOLAS' long-term mission implementation.
