K2M Group Holdings, the Leesburg-based company that has pioneered new spinal surgery techniques, on Monday hosted Marcus John, a photographer and founder of the Straightforward Foundation.
The foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness of scoliosis. John’s photography, displayed at K2M, shows the beauty of scars associated with scoliosis, which is a spinal curvature condition that affects an estimated six to nine million people in the United States. John was in attendance to discuss his photographs at the K2M auditorium.
The day marked National Scoliosis Awareness Month. K2M hosted space for the exhibition as well as financial support.
