A $1 million donation by Robert and Janice Compton created the Dr. James H. Beaty Research Fund at the InMotion Musculoskeletal Institute in Memphis, Tenn. The fund will finance the purchase of advanced scientific equipment and support pioneering medical research at InMotion.
The gift honors AAOS President James H. Beaty, MD, who is currently Chief of Staff at the Campbell Clinic and a founding member of the InMotion Board of Directors.
“Our interest was to recognize two treasures that we have in Memphis—Dr. Beaty and InMotion,” said Mr. Compton. “Dr. Beaty is known world-wide for his leadership in orthopaedics, and we felt it important that he be recognized here at home as well—for his surgical skills, for his community leadership, and for his vision to push the frontiers of medical research at InMotion.”
