The Amputee Coalition is hosting a regional event for people with limb loss, their families, friends, and clinicians. As the largest advocacy organization for people with limb loss or limb difference, the event centers on offering reliable information and experiences that support the organization’s mission to offer education and support.
“Limb Loss Education Days were created to provide an easy way for people to come together as a community, to learn and talk about topics that are relevant and important to people affected by limb loss,” said Dan Ignaszewski, Director of Government Relations and Marketing. “Although we reach hundreds of thousands of people on line, there is something powerful about meeting face to face.”
The event runs from 9am at the University of Memphis, 499 University, Memphis, TN 38152. The presentations include Phantom Limb Pain and Mirror Therapy by Dr. Jack Tsao, Maximizing Function after Limb Loss by Dr Audrey Zucker-Levin, and Being Your Own Advocate by Dan Ignaszewski. The afternoon will include a popular afternoon gait clinic by the Amputee Blade Runners.
