Congratulations to Dr. Lee, Dr. Berlet, Dr. Philbin, and Dr. Hyer who received the 2011 Arthritis Foundation Pioneers of Medicine Award last weekend at the Crystal Ball. It was a wonderful evening to celebrate the achievements of OFAC and raise money for the Central Ohio Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation. The event raised over $200,000 for the Foundation. We are very honored to be recognized by the Foundation. According to Dr. Berlet, "OFAC is one of the nations leaders in foot and ankle innovation and it is often said that we are better known nationally than in our own local community. It is rewarding to have recognition from our local community and even more special to have it done by the leaders of the Arthritis Foundation." What also made the evening so special to all of us “was to see the showing of support from our colleagues, staff,  and friends who were there to share the event with us", says Dr. Hyer.  Thank you to everyone who attended and gave their support to the Foundation. Dr. Lee is also very proud of the award, “It takes a team of dedicated caring professionals to deliver the highest level of care. Finally a group, rather than an individual, has been recognized for their mutual accomplishments upwards great patient care, research and education.” The Crystal Ball was a night to remember for everyone and reassurance to our team to continue to deliver the highest quality of care for our patients. “We enjoy partnering with the Arthritis Foundation”, says Dr. Philbin, “to help educate, treat, and do research to benefit those who suffer from arthritis, is truly something we are all passionate about.” Click here to see the video shown at the Crystal Ball about OFAC.
