Welcome HIP class of 2021!
We're excited to introduce our class of 2021, who recently began our summer Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP). This unique program provides college students with a unique, clinical immersion experience in healthcare as they shadow real healthcare providers (preceptors). As in 2020, we've modified the program a bit to accommodate COVID-19 health and safety protocols. As always, our students will only be observers in low-risk outpatient, orthopedic, elective care. and classroom settings.
This year's students are: Nicole Marquez, Sarah Ortiz, Cameron Thollaug, and Caymus Smith-Pierce. Our new program coordinator is 2020 HIP alum Mahnoor Yousuf.
Meet our HIP Coordinator, Mahnoor!
We’re excited to announce that Mahnoor Yousuf is again supporting our Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP) as a Coordinator.
If Mahnoor’s name seems familiar, it’s because she was Coordinator for the 2021 program, and was a student in the 2020 HIP program. She is a graduate of UC San Diego having majored in biochemistry and cell biology, with a minor in global health. She's currently applying to medical schools.
2020: a year about survival and service
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.
Thanks for a successful Canes 2020!
We're thrilled to report that Sunday's Third Annual Canes Film Festival & Gala was a success! We're so grateful for everyone who attended our first virtual event, along with our wonderful sponsors, and silent auction bidders and auction-item donors!
Mark your calendars: Canes is Nov. 8!
Canes is coming! And this year, it’s virtual!
Plan to join JOF and friends online on Sunday, November 8, 2020, 4 to 5:30 p.m. PST, for our Third Annual Canes Film Festival & Gala. This is a very special fundraising event you won’t want to miss.
We're happy to share that our six-week, summer Healthcare Immersion Program for 2020 was a success! Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, we were able to modify the program to include both in-clinic observation and online study to make it as engaging and informative as possible for participants, organizers, and preceptors alike.
We're the staff and volunteers at Jackson Orthopedic Foundation, committed to improving the lives of patients with musculoskeletal conditions through education, research and service.
