Dublin Man Trying To Save Georgia Tech Prosthetics Program

via WMAZ:

Georgia Tech officials say they are examining the future of the
Masters of Science in Prosthetics and Orthotics program, which one
student says could be a costly mistake.

About eight years ago, Brian White lost his leg in a work accident.

“The machine basically caught my boot and started pulling me into the
machine. It didn’t stop until it had completely taken my leg off,” he
says. “There was so little muscle left in my residual limb that I
would probably never walk again.”

He did walk again, and now he wants to help others do the same.

“I was very depressed at the time,” he says. “I could have easily
given up and been in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. I think
meeting a good practitioner and him working hard with me to achieve
my goals is the reason I’m doing every thing I am today.”

That inspired him to go back to school at Middle Georgia State
University.
