by C. Scott Harrison M.D.

Dr. Scott Harrison, former President and CEO of CURE International, founded the organization with his wife, Sally, in 1996. His decision to start CURE is the direct result of his passion to cure the neediest disabled children in the world and to train others to do the same.

He began his 26 years of orthopedic surgery after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh Medical School in 1963. His experience is extensive, ranging from a year of medical service in Vietnam during the war, personally treating 3,000 disabled children in Malawi, as well as assuming the following posts: – Clinical Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Penn State Medical School – Director of Scoliosis Service for the Pennsylvania State Crippled Children s Hospital – Chief of Orthopedics at Harrisburg Hospital in Pennsylvania

Then in 1991, Kirschner Medical Corporation, an international orthopedic supply company, asked Dr. Harrison to serve as CEO and President. He accepted, and in 1994, led the company through a merger with Biomet, Inc. The success of that merger provided the funding and the freedom for Dr. Harrison to pursue his vision for healing disabled children. He and his wife Sally began the construction of CURE s first hospital in Kenya in 1998.
