The NWAAOP Chapter Meeting is just around the corner and we have a variety of topics to be covered with speakers that include: VA Physician, Researchers, and CPOs, Dr. Robert Veith from MOI, UW Professors/Researchers Kate Allyn and Murray Maitland, Dr. Amanda Steen from Swedish Hospital, and Brian Bartlett. We are looking forward to another successful conference!
The NWAAOP held its annual continuing education conference and had a great turnout. We had 34 exhibitors, 130 attendees, and great lectures on a wide variety of O&P topics including rotationplasty, meningococcemia, spinal cord injury, 3D printing, residual limb volume, and much more. We will be using the proceeds to continue to support local charities, educational research, and O&P educational programs. Thank you to all who attended and continue to make this event a great success.
The NWAAOP is committed to humanitarian outreach programs that support prosthetic and orthotic fittings in countries that do not have the resources to provide those services. We are proud to announce our continued support of Mobility Outreach International and our recent donation of $1,250 to help fund their efforts to provide quality health care to those in need. In 2014 MOI was able to provide club foot treatment for 704 children giving them the ability to walk again.
