Wright supports independent organizations focused on the advancement of medicine, the provision of medical education, and patient awareness. Philanthropic funding provided by Wright Medical is overseen by the Grants Review Committee (GRC), a cross-departmental group of Wright Medical employees. At their direction, the company has developed and implemented a strategy to strongly support select independent organizations.
In 2016, Wright Medical proudly supports American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS), Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF), OMeGA Medical Grants Association, and Australian Orthopaedic Association (AOA). Collectively, these organizations seek to improve lives within the orthopaedic extremities space, through excellence in research, education, and humanitarian service.
