Zimmer Biomet launches nonprofit to help decrease orthopedic care disparities

Carly Behm -  

Zimmer Biomet created an independent 501(c)(3) for Movement is Life, a coalition that aims to decrease musculoskeletal health disparities among women, racial and ethnic minorities and women living in rural communities.

The coalition was founded in 2010, and the new nonprofit is designed to allow the organization to continue raising awareness of disparities through programs that focus on early intervention, education, behavior change and advocacy, according to a June 30 news release.

"Over the past 12 years, Movement is Life has been the premier organization addressing health disparities in orthopedics," Keri Mattox, Zimmer Biomet chief communications and administration officer, said in the release. "This new nonprofit status will allow the organization to expand partnerships and develop new relationships to continue the important work of the coalition."
