Our inaugural Orthopalooza MSK skills weekend was a hit. Usually part of our blended learning Orthopedic Primary Care Courses, we broke out the weekend workshop as a standalone two-day workshop event April 8 & 9.
Held at Creekside Commons in Lafayette, California, the workshop, valued at 15 contact hours, quickly sold out and we're already planning our next Orthopalooza event for September 9-10.
Education is a key focus for us at JOF -- and it was a great experience to finally be in person again with friends and colleagues at the California Association for Nurse Practitioners 44th Annual Educational Conference in Pasadena.
It was a lively event filled with learning and networking -- including presentations on menopause and foot and ankle pain by our instructors Kathleen Geier, DNP and A.J. Benham, DNP
It would be an understatement to say that 2020 has been unprecedented – in fact, we hear that term so much that it hardly seems apt anymore to begin to describe the last 12 months. COVID-19 has been the grim centerpiece of much of that year, and, like many nonprofits, JOF has had to work hard to keep serving our constituents in this continually challenging environment.
However, thanks to you – our volunteers, donors, sponsors, students, preceptors, and team – we have weathered this storm. And we’re proud to say that we still managed to accomplish a fair amount.
