The Board of Directors of the Patellofemoral Foundation is pleased to announce that DJO Global has again committed to supporting the organization. Senior Vice President Michael McBrayer recently confirmed to the board that DJO Global will support the organization with a 5 year, $50,000 per year commitment.
With the announcement, Mr. McBrayer added that “DJO Global is proud to continue and further our support to the Patellofemoral Foundation. The Foundation’s worldwide efforts to improve the quality of life for individuals with knee pain falls directly in line with DJO Global and our efforts to keep people in motion. Truly Motion is Medicine.”
Dr. John Fulkerson, founder and President of the Patellofemoral Foundation responded that “the Foundation is grateful for all support offered to support or mission and goals, but we are extremely pleased with the relationship with DJO Global that has been generous and consistent since we formed the organization in 2003.”
The PFF has partnered with major organizations to continue with their effort to provide education and support research to help surgeons with the information and options needed to help patients suffering from anterior knee pain. These organizations include AANA (Arthroscopy Association of North America), AOSSM (American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine) and ISAKOS (International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery, and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine).
“The board is looking forward to continuing with a number of successful and effective programs such as acknowledging and supporting research and traveling fellowships. Donations to the foundation also provide the opportunity to expand its reach into new areas such as developing programs to benefit residents”, said Eric Dahlinger, Executive Director of the PFF.
