One of our goals at JEO is to help young people understand more about their joints, and how to care for them starting from a young age. The JEO educational platform fosters the creation of healthy habits, the implementation of useful daily routines that help the body develop and remain pain-free, and the benefit of keeping people active in society and productive in the workforce.
The first goal of Joint Education Outreach (JEO) is to increase joint health awareness in children and adults who are residents of underserviced and underprivileged neighborhoods in the United States. To accomplish its goals, JEO teaches school-aged children about human joints, including what they are made of, how they work, how to use them, why they are important and how to care for them. We aim to:
JEO’s children’s programs will be held in schools, health fairs, camps, clubs, churches, synagogues, mosques, temples and other appropriate venues. Trained professional educators use age-appropriate multimedia presentations, anatomical posters and hands-on models, which students can manipulate. JEO’s main goal is for attendees to develop a lifetime commitment to practicing healthy joint–care habits and a strong sense of personal responsibility to achieve and maintain joint health throughout their lives.
JEO plans to extend its Joint Outreach Program to America’s veterans, too. The programs will be conducted at veterans’ centers, community centers, veterans’ groups and other appropriate venues. JEO’s goal is teach veterans about human joints, including what they are made of and how they work, how to identify when a joint may be injured, what to do if they injure a joint and how to minimize the possibility of joint injury.
Many veterans may have suffered damage to their joints during the time they served in the military. JEO believes those who have served their country should have every opportunity to learn how they can remediate or correct their injuries. Each of us chooses to serve our country in our own fashion. We have chosen to reach out to veterans and teach them about their joints, including what to do if they need medical attention for a joint health problem. It is a mission that helps everyone.
