The Amputee Coalition is pleased to announce the 2022 National Conference will be held in person at the JW Marriott Desert Spring Resort & Spa, August 10-13, 2022. This year’s conference theme “Growing Our Community to Shape the Future,” will highlight ways to expand our community in every way. The Amputee Coalition celebrates its diverse community and aims to fully engage all people living with limb loss and limb difference to build a collective voice on critical issues impacting the community and to elevate the organization’s mission. Conference offerings will have a special focus on health equity, diversity, equity and inclusion, and youth engagement.
As the premier event for the limb loss and limb difference community, the Amputee Coalition’s national conference is the only patient- and consumer-focused event that creates the opportunity for our community members to interact with a breadth of solutions on the market. During our conference, attendees can engage with vendors, touch and feel the latest prosthesis on the market, and leverage that experience to make informed decisions about their care and needed support.
National Conference is also the Amputee Coalition’s largest activity designed to “reach” the community en masse based on our founding principles, including the importance of peer support and elevating expertise only gained through lived experience. The event spotlights education and engagement across all four of the organization’s program areas: education, support, prevention, and advocacy.
