As orthodontic residents from throughout North America arrived at the University of Michigan for the 2022 Graduate Orthodontic Residents Program (GORP), AAO volunteer leaders and staff were on hand to welcome them.  The AAO is a Diamond Level sponsor of GORP 2022, which begins August 4 and will run through August 7. The AAO Foundation (AAOF) also provided financial support of GORP.

Among the speakers at this year’s meeting will be Dr. Norman Nagel, AAO president, and Dr. Kyla Swearingen, a past member of the AAO Council on New and Younger Members (CONYM).

The AAO also donated a 2023 Annual Session VIP package for the GORP raffle (including airfare reimbursement, hotel accommodations and event tickets). The AAO, as well as the AAOF, the AAO Insurance Company (AAOIC) and the AAO Political Action Committee are staffing booths in the meeting Exhibit Hall to answer questions from attendees.

The GORP meeting, which began in 1999, offers orthodontic residents a variety of educational lectures, recreational opportunities and networking activities.
