SSSF 3rd Annual Power Over Scoliosis Family Educational Program was a SUCCESS!

Families from all over Southern California and throughout the nation, gathered on June 2, 2018, for a day of learning, camaraderie, and fun, at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego!
197 people attended this year’s Power Over Scoliosis program! From MD’s to RN’s, orthotists and industry sponsors, researchers and parent ambassadors, volunteers, and beloved scoliosis patients, each person represented the unique and important roles we all play in this multifaceted Scoliosis Community.

Chairmen, Drs. Peter Newton and Burt Yaszay, and esteemed faculty, dedicated an entire year of collaboration to put together the 2018 Power Over Scoliosis program in San Diego.

As a result, patients and families shared their stories as attendees gleaned tips for successfully navigating their family’s scoliosis journey. Most importantly, families left feeling supported and heard.

This year’s Power Over Scoliosis program was financed through sponsorships & donations received from last year’s program in Miami.

Everyone who attended Power Over Scoliosis in support of a loved one with scoliosis!

Patient & parent ambassadors for sharing your story and being a resource of hope and support.

Faculty and chairmen, Drs. Peter Newton & Burt Yaszay, for crafting a powerful, intuitive, and comprehensive program agenda.

Sponsors, event staff, and volunteers for working together to ensure a fantastic experience was had by all.
