The Washington, DC-based American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association (AOPA), its international partner organizations, and the 2017 World Congress Planning Committee in February announced that two new partners—the Orthotics and Prosthetics Association of India (OPAI) and the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA)—will be participating in the 2017 AOPA World Congress, scheduled for September 6-9 in Las Vegas.
The CMTA supports development of new drugs to treat CMT to improve the quality of life for people with the condition, and, ultimately, to find a cure. OPAI is the leading national organization in India devoted to improving quality of life for persons with disabilities through innovative O&P services.
In partnership with the Center for O&P Learning & Evidence-Based Practice, AOPA has unveiled its 2017 Requests for Proposals (RFPs) inviting submissions for O&P research. AOPA will fund up to four pilot grants in 16 potential areas for up to $15,000 each.
