About Us

Jackson Orthopedic Foundation is a 501 c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with musculoskeletal conditions through education, research and service. Since our founding in 1998, our goal has been to raise the profile and priority of non-surgical musculoskeletal health with local hospitals, schools and the general public, while encouraging a collaborative, multi-disciplinary care model in the orthopedic community.

JOF’s vision is to be the Bay Area’s pre-eminent resource for information, collaboration and innovation affecting musculoskeletal health and common orthopedic conditions. We work with local and national organizations to provide care for underserved individuals and communities while helping medical professionals improve the level of care in their own practices, now and in the future. 
We also strive to remove barriers to innovation and improvement of care by embarking on efforts that build community among schools, hospitals, providers, and the industry.
