What is an LLED?
Limb Loss Education Days are designed to energize people interested in learning more about living well with limb loss. Education, advocacy, and activity are the themes of the day, starting with presenters speaking from personal experience, a shared lunch and exhibit hall, and adaptive activities in the afternoon.
Who should attend?
People living with limb difference or limb loss and their loved ones, including family, friends and caregivers. Clinicians working with the community are welcome, too.
Where are they held?
These events are typically held in comfortable, accessible settings like a rehabilitation center, hospital, community center, or similar neutral site. We try to maximize accessible parking and minimize walking distances so you can focus your energy on the event itself, not getting there. If you have a suggestion for a location, please email LLED@amputee-coalition.org.
What to expect
Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email. A few days prior to the event, we will send an email reminder with the date, time, location, parking and program.
At the event, we will have a list of everyone that is registered. We’ll check your name off, give you a program, and answer any questions you have.
At the event, we recommend arriving a little early to meet others and get settled. There will be breaks between the formal presentations, lunch at noon and a chance to talk to the exhibitors and participate in adaptive activities.
If you have any questions, please email LLED@amputee-coalition.org.
Exhibiting or Sponsoring
If you serve the limb loss community, we invite you to join us and sponsor or exhibit during the event. This is a unique chance to personally connect with dozens of people impacted by limb loss in an intimate setting. Interested in more?
