Our recent program in Shawano, WI was featured in the Shawano Leader. We had a great time! Thirty-eight students from twelve local high schools attended the event sponsored by the Shawano Medical Center Foundation. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with this program.
Seven Perry Initiative staff traveled to New Orleans March 11-15 for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting. We held a combined POP/MSOP on March 12, sponsored by American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society. More photos of the POP/MSOP can be found here. We also promoted Perry at the AAOS Exhibit Hall and enjoyed the food and fun of New Orleans.
Co-founder of The Perry Initiative, Dr. Lisa Lattanza, was recently honored with a Jefferson Award for Public Service by KPIX, a Bay Area CBS affiliate. This award is in recognition of community service in the Bay Area, and Dr. Lattanza was commended for her work with The Perry Initiative, inspiring young women to explore careers in orthopaedics and engineering.
Check out the KPIX piece here. The story also features our Feb 2014 UCSF POP.
Congratulations, Dr. Lattanza!
