In memory of Dr. Jacquelin Perry
(May 31, 1918 – March 11, 2013)
As many of you know, our great mentor and colleague Dr. Jacquelin Perry recently passed away, just shy of her 95th birthday. She pioneered so much of what remains fresh and timely in orthopaedics and rehabilitation: complex musculoskeletal surgery for polio and cerebral palsy; motion and gait analysis; and above all as a teacher to many, especially young women. She attended every Ruth Jackson Society meeting, where she encouraged and supported students, scholars, and leaders. Lisa Lattanza presented an inspiring memorial at our annual meeting, detailing Dr. Perry’s humor, passion for orthopaedic surgery, and above all her spirit and dedication.
I would like to ask you to join me in honoring Dr. Perry’s memory with a contribution. Large or small, we can make a difference and celebrate her legacy in orthopaedic surgery.
There are several ways for Ruth Jackson members to honor and celebrate her life:
