      WHY: This fundraiser supports vital JOF training for nurses and other clinicians — training that is needed more than ever to care for patients who are suffering from painful joint and other musculoskeletal conditions

      Jackson Orthopedic Foundation's (JOF's) annual benefit event for health education is a unique and fun-filled celebration of student films about orthopedic health. Orthopedics is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention or correction of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints, and ligaments.

      “Canes is JOF’s most important fundraiser, as it supports vital training for nurses and other clinicians — training that is needed more than ever to care for patients who are suffering from painful joint and other musculoskeletal conditions,” says Kathleen A. Geier, DNP, JOF Director, Orthopedic Education.

      About the Event: The entertaining short films screened at Canes are produced by students in JOF’s Healthcare Immersion Program and Orthopedic Primary Care courses. The event features special presentations from JOF alumni, patients, students, and advocates, in addition to audience awards for the best short film, a silent auction, and a short intermission for socializing. The festival name is a nod to the internationally known film festival in France.

      Standard Canes tickets are $50, and student tickets are $25. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

      Support for Canes benefits JOF’s three flagship programs, which provide training for nurses and other clinicians:

      *Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP), a clinical immersion experience for college students to explore various health fields
      *Orthopedic Primary Care (OPC) program, four courses to prepare clinicians to diagnose and manage musculoskeletal conditions
      *Orthopedic Injection Workshops, continuing education classes to teach advanced practice providers to administer joint injections
