Amputee CoalitionThe Amputee Coalition is the only national nonprofit serving those living with limb loss or limb difference and empowers them to achieve their full potential through support, education, and advocacy. This year’s conference themed, “Elevate Together Towards Tomorrow,” highlighted ways to build what’s next for the community to ensure a world where those living with limb loss and limb difference can thrive.

“This is a powerful community,” said Cass Isidro, president and CEO of the Amputee Coalition. “The conference is all about harnessing the strength, knowledge, and experience of our community under one roof to connect people living with limb loss and limb difference with leading minds, breakthrough technologies, health and wellness opportunities, and peers.”

As the premier event for the 4.1 million members of the limb loss and limb difference community, the Amputee Coalition’s national conference is the only event that creates the opportunity for attendees to touch and feel the latest prosthesis and healthcare technologies on the market and leverage that experience to make informed decisions about their care and needed support. Adaptive recreational and sports clinics, educational sessions, networking with exhibitors, and opportunities to connect with peer support networks were offered during the 3.5-day event.

The National Conference for the Amputee Coalition was held at Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld in Central Florida.
