Lunch and Learn Webinar

The American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists are hosting a Lunch & Learn Live Webinar on Wednesday, June 6, from Noon to 1:00 pm ET.

Differences in Outcome Measures Between Patients with Lower-Limb Amputations Classified as K2 versus K3 will be presented by Jaclyn "Meg" Sions, PhD, DPT, PT, OCS. 

Prosthetic prescription is based on functional level classification; i.e., K-Level assignment, but insurance-provided definitions of K-Levels are vague. Use of outcome measures that can differentiate between different K-Level categories; e.g., K2 versus K3, may assist clinicians with justifying a patient's functional level and reduce inter-clinician variability in K-Level assignment and will be discussed during this session.

If you are not a member of the Academy, you can still participate, you can create an Online Learning Center Account on their website.

6th Annual Roll on Capitol Hill

The United Spinal Association will be hosting their 6th Annual Roll on Capitol Hill Legislative and Advocacy Conference from Sunday, June 11, 2017 to Wednesday, June 14, 2017 in Washington, DC. 

This event allows those in the spinal cord injury and disorders (SCI/D) community a chance to connect with people, learn about topics and governmental policy, culminating in meetings with Congressional leaders on those topics. 

While we don't have much detail on the specifics yet, you can reach out to the Washington DC chapter of the United Spinal Association, The SCI Network of Metropolitan Washington, by emailing them using their form. Or you can call their main office in New York at (718) 803-3782 (please note, this number is not toll free).

Watch this space, as we have more details, we will pass them along!
