Dr. Perry Honored at UCSF with 1st Annual “Dr. Jacquelin Perry Mentorship Award”

Dr. Perry receives her award from Dr. Lisa Lattanza

During the Perry Initiative fundraising kick-off event held Thursday, November 1st, 2012  at the UCSF Orthopaedic Institute, the UCSF Department of Orthopaedic Surgery (represented by Perry co-founder, Dr. Lisa Lattanza) honored Dr. Jacquelin Perry as the first recipient of the Dr. Jacquelin Perry Excellence in Mentorship Award.

Dr. Perry shares words of wisdom with the audience after accepting her award

This award will be given annually to a member of the UCSF Orthopaedic Faculty to reward mentorship relationships and thus broader impacts on, or contributions to, the orthopaedic surgical community-at-large.

Dr. Perry was the first woman to graduate from UCSF’s orthopaedic surgery residency in 1955.  She has since had an illustrious and inspired career, with one of the most prolific academic publication records of any  surgeon, male or female.  Her studies on gait analysis have contributed to the fields of orthopaedics and physical therapy for decades and are well-known to students and professionals in both fields.  She is currently Professor Emeritus at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center in Downey, California.

Many generations of orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists gathered to have their pictures taken with a person of professional inspiration, Dr. Jacquelin Perry.

The Perry Initiative was honored to take part in this award ceremony. As part of the Perry Initiative’s mission and purpose, mentorship remains key in areas where women (or members of any minority group) are underrepresented.  Studies show that students are far more likely to remain in a particular field of study IF they are able to find and connect with mentors who are similar to themselves.

Thank you, Dr. Perry, for continuing to serve as our mentor and inspiration.
