"Today is #FOPAwarenessDay. Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva is a rare condition where muscle tissue ossifies into bone over time. This is the skeleton of Harry Eastlack, who donated his body to medical science in order to find a cure to this rare condition. Dr. Kaplan, a Fellow of our home The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, is working with #UPenn and #CHOP to help understand this and other bone diseases. You can visit Harry at our museum, and learn more about FOP at ifopa.org
