2017 Annual Golf Outing
ONSF, in conjunction with Greenwich Hospital, held its 9th Annual Golf Outing on Monday, June 5th at the outstanding Stanwich Club in Greenwich, Connecticut. Golfers, who were welcomed by staff and volunteers, enjoyed lunch on the terrace followed by a round of golf.
Later in the day, non-golfing friends and other supporters
joined the players for cocktails, silent and live auctions and a dinner
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.
