General information

Our society is aging, and the prevalence of age-related disease is increasing, including and joint disorders. In addition to the pain and suffering they cause, these conditions also have an increasingly large effect on our economy in the form of increased absenteeism, lost productivity, and increased health care, disability, and worker’s compensation costs. Meanwhile, according to the United States Bone & Joint Initiative (link), Baby Boomers have just begun to become beneficiaries of Medicare, and the economic and societal cost of bone and joint health is expected to begin a further escalation that will endure for decades. The time is now to confront this growing health trend head-on, especially at the local level. We do this through donor-funded education, research and service aimed at improving quality of care, improving collaboration between professionals and attracting young talent to join the profession.

Our Story

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 nonsurgical musculoskeletal health with local hospitals, schools, and the general public, while encouraging a collaborative, multidisciplinary care model in the orthopedic community. JOF’s vision is to be the Bay Area’s preeminent 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.
