Within the realm of our mission, this partnership provided an outstanding golf experience to specifically benefit ONSF clinical research, medical education and community outreach programs all of which substantially improve patient treatment and care while enhancing healthy, active living. Recently, ONSF announced a major research initiative Unraveling the Opioid Epidemic in Post-Surgical Patients. Utilizing its skills, ONSF will work diligently to resolve this significant problem that is affecting a very sizable group of individuals.
