We are looking for someone who understands the ins and outs of grant writing and can spearhead leading proposals to community foundations and private family foundations whose mission aligns with ours. Proposals accepted will help underwrite important scoliosis community programs which provide families with educational guidance and support as well as strengthen the public's awareness about scoliosis and the need for early detection.
More about Setting Scoliosis Straight & Staff:
Setting Scoliosis Straight is a research non-profit with a big mission and an even bigger heart. Despite a small-staff of nine, collectively we manage the largest adolescent idiopathic scoliosis database registry in the world. It is from this data that some of the greatest discoveries in orthopedics were born. Improved surgical treatment, improved patient care, improved future outcomes, are all a result of research conducted behind the scenes on behalf of the children and families whose lives are impacted.
In addition, Setting Scoliosis Straight travels to a different city every year to put on scoliosis educational events for the scoliosis community. Through research, education, and community support, we help families work through their child's diagnosis to determine the best treatment solution for them. Live scoliosis programs such as Power Over Scoliosis and Give Backs Hope, bring together families and provide the evidence-based information needed to dispel fears and take charge of their child's future.
It is programs like these that can turn a traumatic experience into an opportunity for renewed purpose and hope.
In 2018 we're excited to host these programs in our hometown of sunny San Diego and throughout the Southern California region! In San Diego alone, there are over 100,000 individuals impacted by scoliosis, many of whom are between the ages of 10-18.
