The American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association (AOPA) on June 3 announced the contenders for its 2015 Fall Thranhardt Award and noted the five finalists will present their research at AOPA’s annual National Assembly, scheduled for October 7-10 in San Antonio, TX.
The Thranhardt awards were launched in 1996 by a gift from J.E. Hanger in memory of Howard R. Thranhardt, CP. Go to aopanet.org for details on the finalists and their presentations.
National Assembly attendees can earn 35-plus continuing education credits at the event, which will feature five concurrent sessions for orthotists, prosthetists, pedorthists, technicians, and business owners and managers; case studies and grand round style programming; and information on the latest regulatory rules and regulations.
