AOPA reveals plans for U.S.-based World Congress of O&P in 2013

The American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association (AOPA) announces the 2013 World Congress of Orthotics & Prosthetics, which will take place September 18 through 21, 2013, at the Gaylord Palm Resort in Orlando.

For more information or to learn how to present at the World Congress, contact Tina Moran at tmoran@AOPAnet.org. To advertise or reserve space in the exhibit hall at the World Congress, contact Kelly O’Neill at koneill@AOPAnet.org or call 571/431-0852.

This is the first AOPA-hosted World Congress of O&P, and in 2013 it will replace the AOPA National Assembly. The AOPA has established an international planning committee that is collaborating with O&P groups around the world. Two other major O&P world congresses are coming up: the Orthopädie + Reha-Technik in 2012 in Leipzig, Germany, and the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics’ 13th World Congress in 2013 in Hyderabad, India.
