We are pleased to announce that we will have a very special guest at the next session of Amputee Walking School, on June 20, 2018!
Erika Brannock will be there 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.
Registration is open for the next session of Amputee Walking School, June 20, 2018, so come and join us and meet Erika while you are there.
Todd and Dennis will be there as Dankmeyer co-hosts with the University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute (UMROI). More formally known as Advanced Gait Training for Individuals with Lower Extremity Amputations, Amputee Walking School features two segments. The afternoon segment is a learning session for professionals, followed by an evening session where those with lower limb loss and their families come to work with the pros on various kinds of exercises.
