March - April 2014 - Nutrition and Tissue Healing
This spring, we at the Orthopaedic Division Review (ODR) would like you to take a step back and reflect on how much proper nutrition can affect your treatment plans.

WOW!!! Wasn't that a great Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia?! Canada did well in the medal count.

I am very impressed with the level of passion and commitment that the various Division Chairs bring to the table; there is a lot of behind-the-scenes work that is being done by these volunteers.
