Calling Everyone Affected by Limb Loss in the Boston Area

Kevin Manuel In The News

Limb Loss Education Day Coming to Boston September 23

Limb Loss Education Day (LLED), a full day of education and adaptive recreation for those with limb loss, will be held in Charlestown, Massachusetts at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital on Saturday, September 23 from 9am to 3pm. The Amputee Coalition’s goal is to provide access to national resources while building local connections, offering education and activities for people living with limb loss, their families and caregivers.

The event features several prominent clinicians, easy-to-do adaptive activities like yoga, and a lunch that gives time to talk to other people living with limb loss. The cost is $15 for adults and children 11 and older. Children 10 and under are free.

“By bringing one-day, low cost programs to cities around the country we hope to reach more people with meaningful educational programming that is relevant to them and to their communities,” said Jack Richmond, President & CEO of the Amputee Coalition. “These regional LLEDs have been a great success for the past five years and help shine a spotlight on local groups, planting seeds for increased awareness and support for people with limb loss and limb differences.”

The Amputee Coalition invites everyone affected by limb loss in the Boston area to join us at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. Throughout the event, exhibitors from national and local organizations will also feature technology, programs and services.
