In addition to presenting the AAHKS Humanitarian Award to an AAHKS member each year, AAHKS makes a $5,000 donation to the humanitarian medical organization in which the recipient is involved. Organizations that have benefited from the donation are: Operation Walk Maryland, Operation Walk USA and Faith in Practice.

The Humanitarian Award recognizes AAHKS members who have distinguished themselves through providing humanitarian medical services and programs with a significant focus on musculoskeletal diseases and trauma including the hip and knee in the United States or abroad.

The nomination deadline for the 2018 AAHKS Humanitarian Award is April 15, 2018. Nominees are reviewed by the AAHKS Humanitarian Committee and will be asked to provide further details about themselves and their endeavors before the award recipient is selected.
