We are very excited about the research and educational activities at TBIRF, but this work is not possible without financial support. You can play a vital role by making a contribution to the Foundation. Donations can be made to TBIRF or designated specifically for research or education.
Research donations help to cover costs related to fees for Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval to make sure the work is done in compliance with human research standards, preparing materials for presentation and publication, collecting and analyzing data, and costs related to individual projects. The research work performed is related to patient treatment outcomes.
Contributions designated for education are spent to cover costs related to the Spine Surgery Fellowship program, conducting surgical training labs for the Fellows, maintaining journal subscriptions and purchasing books for the TBIRF library, costs of hosting the conference series which is open to all spine care providers free of charge, Journal Club, and other educational events.
Donations are tax deductible and can be made by check to:
