I'm A HIPpy is a community of doctors, researchers, parents, and children who are coming together with the goal of improving hip health and mobility for all children - not only in British Columbia, but also nationally and globally - through research, education, and advocacy. We aim to promote physical activity, overall health and wellbeing, and the importance of keeping mobile and active regardless of physical limitations.
Our mission is to improve hip health, mobility, and quality of life for children with Hip Dysplasia, with the hope of some day seeing a world free from the burden of this condition.
We have been inspired by what Dr. Kishore Mulpuri and his Bone Health and Mobility team at BC Children’s Hospital have accomplished, consider the limited resources and funding available to them. There is yet much more to be done, and through I'm A HIPpy, we are hopeful we can help more children in BC and beyond.
