Invitation to Attend

On behalf of the Spinal Research Foundation (SRF) Board of Directors, we invite you to the Inaugural We’ve Got Your Back Gala.  Each year 99 million Americans suffer from debilitating neck or back pain.  SRF gives patients the necessary tools to make informed decisions about spinal health care, while providing state-of-the-art research that enables the delivery of transformative treatments.

SRF truly empowers patients with knowledge and hope!  We are passionate advocates for this cause, not only because we are physicians, but because we have personally benefited from spinal treatments that work!  Please join us in raising critical funds for research to advance innovations in spinal health care.

This special evening will showcase interactive demonstrations int he spinal tech lounge, followed by dinner and the Spinal Champion award ceremony.  End your night with fabulous desserts and the opportunity to mingle with the area’s top spinal care experts.  You will come away informed and inspired!
