Join us on Friday, June 1, 2018 for Setting Scoliosis Straight’s Give BACKS Hope, Scoliosis Awareness & Charity Event, a joyous and charitable occasion where we will reflect on how far spine research has come in advancing treatments for children, and celebrate a future of many more discoveries that lie ahead.

This year, we are excited to honor Dr. Vernon Tolo, Chief Emeritus, Children’s Orthopaedic Center Director of Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, for his innovative contributions in the area of spinal instrumentation and unparalleled commitment to research, his patients, and the medical community.

Come enjoy an exciting night filled with delicious food, live entertainment, silent auction, and charitable giving! Together, we will give BACKS hope! We can’t wait to see you there!

What is Give BACKS Hope?

Give BACKS Hope is an annual scoliosis charitable event that aims to inspire hope in patients and families who are at the beginning of their scoliosis journeys by connecting them to patients who have walked in their shoes and now are in a position to give back to their community. We celebrate innovations in spinal deformity research, pioneers who steer the course of patient care, and grateful patients whose courage have triumphed all adversities. Approximately six to nine million people in the United States alone suffer from scoliosis. By raising funds to support evidence-based spinal deformity research, we are making health, happiness, and advancements in patient care a top priority.

When you contribute to Setting Scoliosis Straight, 100% of your contribution goes directly to funding ongoing and future spine research. Thanks to the collective efforts of loyal donors, community leaders, industry supporters, and medical professionals, Setting Scoliosis Straight continues to be an internationally recognized leader in pediatric spinal deformity research and care. Your support has made a significant impact in improved patient outcomes, and we thank you for your commitment!
