|ACPOC’s close proximity to Clearwater Marine Aquarium provided the perfect opportunity for a special presentation about Winter
the dolphin. Joe Malo, (left) director of education at the aquarium presented Winter’s story, and Dan Strzempka, CPO, (right) Hanger
Prosthetics & Orthotics, talked about “Winter’s Prosthetic Tale: How It Was Made,” with the assistance of his resident, Michael Carroll.
The Association of Children’s Prosthetic-Orthotic Clinics (ACPOC)
family grew this year. For the first time, ACPOC held its annual meeting jointly with members of the Orthopedic Rehabilitation Association (ORA). Sunshine, white-sand beaches, and picture-perfect sunsets welcomed both groups from June 2-5 in Clearwater, Florida.
Shriners Hospitals for Children, Tampa, served as the local host of this year’s event.
