In support of our relationship with the Young Leadership Council (YLC), Fellowship of Orthopaedic Researchers was proud to host a group of 8th grade students from Langston Hughes Academy in New Orleans participating in the Job Site Visit phase of Power Ties on April 6, 2018.
Power Ties, a partnership of the Young Leadership Council and First Line Schools, is a career awareness program that connects professionals with 8th grade students to talk about career readiness and business etiquette. The students were given a tour of the FOR facility which included all of our specialty laboratories. They also participated in several hands-on projects while visiting the Design, Image Analysis, Biomechanics, and Cadaver Labs. The half-day session concluded with lunch, questions, and discussion.
