The Washington, DC-based American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association (AOPA) in February unveiled a commemorative website, AOPA100.org, as part of the association’s yearlong celebration of its 100th anniversary. The website features AOPA’s history, an interactive timeline, photo gallery, personal stories from AOPA members, and AOPA’s plans for the future.
AOPA also reported in January that its clinical content committee for the organization’s 2017 world congress will select the top 10 clinical education submissions for publication in a special edition of the Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation. Authors will also give a podium presentation of their paper and get special recognition at the upcoming congress, scheduled for September 6-9 in Las Vegas.
Other scheduled centennial activities include the release of a Who’s Who 100th Anniversary Commemorative Membership Directory to distribute to members, events at the world congress, and sharing of weekly “Throwback Thursday” posts on the organization’s Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts.
