The Setting Scoliosis Straight Foundation, formally known as Harms Study Group Foundation, is a not-for-profit charitable foundation that was established in 2008. Its purpose is to conduct fundraising efforts in support of the Harms Study Group, with a goal to further support and advance techniques in the treatment of spinal deformities in children and adolescents.
The Setting Scoliosis Straight Foundation is in its infancy, but the current impact on improving patient outcomes through Harms Study Group research efforts has been significant.
The surgeons who devote their time to the Harms Study Group remain focused on its commitment to be internationally recognized for the highest quality published research on new spinal deformity surgery techniques. There are, however, many more questions than answers, and spinal deformities continue to affect the lives of many young people who can, and should, have a chance at a better life.
