International Institute of Orthotics and Prosthetics Amputee support group and students hit the road with Certified ACA Peer Visitor Taylor Blackwell to support patients in Volusia County. The group met at Restore POC Daytona and had many great discussions about some of the obstacles we face daily and how we have overcome them. Lots of laughter and good spirits left with each individual afterwards. We will update everyone when next group meetings for Hillsborough, and Volusia County.
We are also looking at providing zoom amputee support group meetings. If you are an amputee or know an amputee that may benefit from attending a zoom support call in the future. Please have them contact the school with contact information and topics they may like students and clinicians to present. We hope to schedule a meeting in October face to face at the Institute to include the golf simulator and adaptive sports event to help get new amputees engaged in fun activities.
