FOCOS Founder speaks at SNF Conference in Athens

3News.com reports the seventh annual Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Conference took place on June 24 to June 25 in Athens Greece.

During his opening remarks, Andreas C. Dracopoulous, co-President of SNF, emphasized the importance of foundations strengthening their existing relationship with partners, citing HSS as an example. “The SNF’s longstanding partnership with one grantee, the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC, has multiplied into relationships with organizations on three continents —from HSS in New York, to FOCOS [Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine] Orthopedic Hospital in Accra, Ghana, and back here to Athens with our own incubated organization, Regeneration & Progress, offering much-needed health and sports services to our society at large.”

Additionally, HSS hip and knee surgeons Thomas P. Sculco, MD, and Peter K. Sculco, MD, participated in a panel discussion with the Founder and President of FOCUS, and discussed the topic of Healthcare, Innovation and Philanthropy.
