Summer Amputee Walking School 2018

Update: Erika Brannock will be at AWS to sign her new children’s book, The Journey of NEM!  NEM is based on the true story of her experiences after the 2013 Boston Marathon,when she became an amputee. This motivational speaker and preschool teacher writes, “I wrote this book hoping to help children understand that when a hard thing happens to them, it’s not going to defeat them…”.  Erika cannot wait to share this beautifully illustrated tale, and the Dankmeyer team is very happy to be a part of her continuing journey.  

Amputee Walking School is an evening of fun and activity when staff at the University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute (UMROI) and Dankmeyer Inc. host Todd Schaffhauser and Dennis Oehler as they teach amputees how to increase mobility or find new ways to stay mobile. 

This event is free and focused on amputees, their families and friends, as well as health care professionals who work with those who have experienced limb loss.
