We are just 2 weeks away from the start of Hip Dysplasia Awareness Month! We are planning activities such as a book club and our annual Pass the Crutch video along with sharing resources throughout the month. For more information on what we have planned and how you can get involved click here!
Please join us for a community building event with Natalia Sylvester, the author of BREATHE AND COUNT BACK FROM TEN. This is a young adult book about a Peruvian American teen with hip dysplasia who auditions to become a mermaid. You can order the book here, or anywhere else it is sold, then join us for an author Q&A, by RSVPing at this link. Please RSVP by May 31st, and join us for the event on Zoom on June 14th at 7pm EST.

We are excited to announce our online store where all proceeds benefit the International Hip Dysplasia Institute! We have T-Shirts, sweatshirts, kids apparel, hats, coffee mugs and more!
Our Pass the Crutch videos are a fun way we have brought our community together. Check them out here!
