The American Society for Surgery of the Hand (“ASSH”) is dedicated to advancing the study and practice of surgery of the hand. To accomplish that mission, it provides support, directly or indirectly, for a variety of activities in the areas of research, education, promotion, and advocacy. The integrity of ASSH, and the activities it undertakes, depends on the avoidance of conflicts of interest, or even the appearance of such conflicts, by the individuals involved in those activities. At the same time, ASSH recognizes that the elected and appointed leaders of ASSH, as well as other individuals acting on its behalf, also have significant professional, business and personal interests and relationships.
