Global Clubfoot Initiative Members Meet

Earlier this month, representatives from clubfoot organizations throughout the world met in London for the annual Global Clubfoot Initiative (GCI) meeting. GCI is a consortium of organizations, including MiracleFeet, who are working to treat clubfoot worldwide.

The two-and-a-half-day meeting was an opportunity for member organizations to discuss progress and challenges, collaborate on shared goals, and showcase work done in the past year.
