Patellofemoral Foundation Board of Directors meeting with Jack Bert, incoming president of the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA), in San Francisco on March 6, 2008.   The Board of Directors welcomed Jack Bert, incoming president of the Arthroscopy Association of North America(AANA), to the meeting and discussed a strategic alliance of the PFF with AANA to promote education of orthopedic surgeons about the patellofemoral joint. A proposal regarding this relationship was submitted to the AANA Board of Directors At its Board of Directors meeting April 2008, The Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) approved a formal relationship with the Patellofemoral Foundation (PFF) as a way of fostering and promoting patellofemoral research and education.

The shared goal is to foster and promote more and better education for AANA members regarding patellofemoral problems, as these can be complex and difficult to treat at times. PFF hopes to help AANA assume a leadership role worldwide in patellofemoral education, particularly as anterior knee pain (AKA patellofemoral pain) is very common among athletes and workers, as well as the elderly.
