“It is with heavy hearts that POPS wishes to recognize the passing of Sarah Gutknecht. Sarah was a champion in the pediatric orthopaedic advanced practice field. She advocated for professional development, emphasizing the importance of building your basic pediatric orthopaedic knowledge while utilizing primary care fundamentals as a foundation for your daily practice. In honor of Sarah, POPS will award two scholarships to cover the registration fee for the annual POPS meeting along with a $150 travel voucher. This scholarship will be offered each fall and has been graciously funded by Gillette Children's Hospital Division of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Sarah’s Celebration of Life will be on Sunday, September 17 at the McNamara Alumni Center, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis Campus. Service at 2 pm with reception to follow through 5 pm. Memorials preferred to Operation Smile or the Animal Humane Society.”
