We would like to invite your participation and input in the development of an international presence for World Spine Day (WSD).  The WSD International Organizing Committee are working to create an interprofessional, inter-organizational and coordinated effort to promote WSD and to continue its development and promotion.  The goal is to develop a world presence and generate sustained momentum for this important day.

We are keen to work in collaboration with interested organizations and to gain support from the whole musculoskeletal community.  At this point in time, we are reaching out to international organizations to garner your interest in participating in this initiative.  Participation is welcome in many ways such as:

  • nominating a representative to participate on the committee
  • promoting World Spine Day within your respective membership
  • participating in World Spine Day planning and coordinating national/regional/local activities
  • providing input into future World Spine Days in any way

It is our goal to make this a truly international, interprofessional effort and thus we are looking for input and support from professional associations, patient advocacy groups, educational institutions and others.

If your organization is interested in collaborating on this initiative, please contact:
