Limb Loss Education Day
Limb Loss Education Days (LLEDs) are designed to bring high-quality patient education and recreation to the local level, where amputees live, work and play, at a very low cost.
“We are very pleased to be able to bring our highly successful LLEDs to local communities again in 2014 and to provide this program at a very low cost to amputees and their families,” said Susan Stout, interim president & CEO of the Amputee Coalition. “Our regional LLEDs have been hugely successful because they make our programs accessible, from both a cost and a travel perspective, to amputees and their families. Regional LLEDs allow us to reach new amputees with relevant information who have not participated in Amputee Coalition events in the past, while also keeping us connected to our longtime friends who are regularly present at our programs.”
Each LLED will feature presentations that are developed with the assistance of an area host who helps to select topics of interest to amputees and the limb loss community in the specific regions. We then team up with OPAF to present adaptive recreation that helps amputees get back in motion. Registration is only $15, with children 10 years and under free (registration for children 10 years and under will be done at the event).
Do not miss this great opportunity for low-cost education, recreation and inspiration!
The Amputee Coalition would like to thank the Barr Foundation for establishing a scholarship to assist children with amputations or limb differences and their families with travel and registration expenses for the Limb Loss Education Day nearest to them.
