Donate to the Spine Intervention Society Research Fund
Interventional spine procedures are under attack! Payers cite a lack of evidence or poor quality evidence for the procedures that we know help improve the quality of life for many patients. What can we do to preserve access to these procedures for patients in need? Do the research and publish the results!
Contributing to the SIS Research Fund is an investment in the future of spine interventions. The Society's leadership believes this and has demonstrated their commitment by establishing a research endowment with an initial $1,000,000 corpus.
Never before have spine interventions come under such scrutiny. This is due in large part to the paucity of high quality studies on interventional spine procedures. The Spine Intervention Society has supported research in the field since 1990, yet much more needs to be accomplished in order to sustain our specialty.
The Spine Intervention Society is committed to funding high quality research that will generate definitive conclusions to assist in better clarifying the role of spine interventions. When you contribute to the SIS Research Fund, you are funding the critical research that will address the important questions in interventional spine care today. This knowledge will inform our educational initiatives and assist in building a robust evidence base to support efforts to preserve access to and reimbursement for the procedures needed to help our patients every day.
If you share the SIS vision and determination to ensure appropriate funding of the definitive studies needed to address high priority research over the years to come, show it by making a contribution to the Spine Intervention Society Research Fund.
Annual 5K Fun Run/Walk for Research
The 5K Fun Run/Walk for Research is a fun and active way to promote interventional spine research at the Spine Intervention Society’s Annual Meetings.
Launched in 2014, the event brings together Annual Meeting attendees, family members, and exhibitors to enjoy a 5K run or walk through the meeting’s host city, while raising funds for research studies that will benefit the specialty and enhance patient care.
Participants do not pay a registration fee to take part; rather, their donation to the Research Endowment Fund covers their registration. Everyone receives a branded t-shirt as well as a recognition ribbon for their Annual Meeting name badge to promote both the event as well as their commitment to research. Participation in this event has increased rapidly over the past two years, with over 70 participants in 2015 consisting of SIS members, their family members, and exhibitors.
Don't forget to pack your running or walking shoes and get ready for a great event in San Francisco! For more information click here.
