20th Anniversary

For 20 years, the Harms Study Group has set the standard in pediatric spinal deformity care. To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, the Harms Study Group and the Setting Scoliosis Straight Foundation are hosting an unforgettable weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, January 24, 2015, including an in-depth CME course followed by a Gala Celebration dinner.

The course, Evidence-Based Pediatric Spinal Deformity Care, will feature a roster of world-class surgeons presenting master techniques in cerebral palsy scoliosis, AIS, and Scheuermann’s kyphosis; free papers on advances in research and treatment options; and robust discussions and debates on current controversies in the field.

The evening following the course will feature a Gala Celebration dinner at the stunning Gehry Building at the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. This cocktail attire event will celebrate the past 20 years of research and raise funds for the next 20 years of innovation.

It’s time to reflect on past accomplishments, take stock of current issues and treatments, and look forward to the next frontiers in pediatric spinal deformity care. Please don’t miss this remarkable weekend!
