The National Commission on Orthotic and Prosthetic Education (NCOPE) announced that Megan C. Tang has been awarded the 2015 Larry Lange Travel Fellowship Award.
Tang recently completed her orthotics residency at the University of Michigan Orthotics and Prosthetics Center. She will present the results of a multidisciplinary team research project, “High Prevalence of Cranial Asymmetry May Exist in Infants with Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy,” in a Thranhardt Lecture at the 2015 American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA) National Assembly and at the 2015 American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Annual Assembly.
The fellowship fund was established in 2007 in honor and memory of Larry Lange, CPO, FAAOP, to provide individuals beginning their O&P careers with an opportunity to enrich their education and professional development. The award is to be used for travel and meeting registration fees for professional O&P conferences or activities.
