“Bill Young was arguably the biggest champion of the wounded warrior in Congress,” said Dr. Jacobs. “When the AAOS was looking for ways to advance research into limb salvage and other treatments for our injured men and women in the Armed Forces, we found no greater ally than Chairman Young.
“AAOS’ signature defense health initiative—the Peer Reviewed Orthopaedic Research Program—would not be around today, were it not for the leadership of Mr. Young and countless staffers who reported to him. Our surgeons and our patients lost one of their best friends in Washington today, and our hearts go out to his wife Beverly and his sons, Billy, Patrick, and Robbie.”
