Movement Is Life Caucus on Musculoskeletal Health Disparities

Drs. Lattanza and Buckley with a view of the Capitol Building

Drs. Buckley and Lattanza were in Washington, DC this week for the annual Movement Is Life Caucus on Musculoskeletal Health Disparities, which is chaired by Perry Board Member, Dr. Mary O’Connor from the Mayo Clinic in Florida.

The Caucus is focused on addressing racial and gender disparities in treating joint pain and brings together surgeons, physical therapists, primary care doctors, educators, and community leaders around this issue. By encouraging more women to enter the field of orthopaedics, The Perry Initiative is helping to address health disparities.

Dr. O’Connor and members of the Caucus organizing committee present an award to Congresswoman Donna Christensen and Congressman Hank Johnson

The Perry Initiative team had a great time in DC, meeting leaders from the government, industry, and academia. We look forward to updating the Caucus next year on our rapidly growing high school outreach program and our new medical school program which will launch this October.
