ACPOC Member Spotlight

ACPOC members are essential to achieving our mission of improving quality of care for patients. Starting in October, ACPOC will recognize a member of the month to help display the personal and professional accomplishments of our members, and to encourage members to network with one another. Featured members will be highlighted in our ACPOC news, social media channels, and on the ACPOC website.

Why ACPOC is important to you? Pediatric rehab and the world of orthotics and prosthetics is made interesting and challenging by the multitude of approaches that are available to care. I enjoy ACPOC because it brings members from all disciplines nationwide together to share ideas and challenge current paradigms of care in this ever changing field. My hope is to encourage these discussions to allow us to progress the field and provide the best care to the most challenging of patients!
