I can’t remember exactly when I started going to O&P professional meetings, but I do know that I have always enjoyed them. The 2009 annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists (the Academy) in Atlanta, Georgia, was no exception. It was great meeting industry leaders as well as those whom I’ve known for as long as I can remember. I’ve enjoyed these meetings primarily because of the people—a wonderful collection of caring individuals working toward providing better care through education and advancement. Speaking of education, at this year’s Academy meeting, there were so many incredible presentations, and I was lucky enough to catch more presentations than I had expected. Too bad those CEUs don’t apply for students!
