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.
