Call To Action
Rural Alaska and Africa are similar in many ways, with similar needs. The Carolyn Jane Foundation strives to enable passionate health care workers, providers, philanthropists, and change agents to translate learnings and practices between two worlds. These motivated people believe that the foundation will ultimately impact orthopaedic practice worldwide.
About the Foundation
100% of the endowment and gifts advance the Carolyn Jane mission, through an all-volunteer clinical and administrative staff. The foundation focuses on efficient and effective solutions to ease human suffering.
The foundation believes that technology must complement teaching to support sustainable orthopaedic care, due to the complexity of the field. To advance this mission, the foundation works in partnership with CURE International to develop sustainable spine care at their center in Kijabe, Kenya. The foundation is also focused on providing medicine and community outreach in rural Alaska. It is the intent of the foundation to deploy the Alaskan solutions across Africa, and the African developments in remote Alaska.
Today, access to basic orthopaedic care is a major factor preventing working people from earning a living or otherwise achieving hope and happiness. Unaddressed orthopaedic problems deprive children of childhood and adults of living a fulfilled life. In our modern health system, disability and dependence is epidemic, and in remote areas, an accident can mean life or death. The Carolyn Jane Foundation brings hope to change these problems.
THE CAROLYN JANE FOUNDATION
The mission of the Carolyn Jane Foundation is to bring orthopaedic spine care to rural areas of need through advanced training of local providers, aided by the development and deployment of market-appropriate logistical and surgical systems.
