On behalf of the prosthetics and orthotics graduating class of 2016 at the British Colombia Institute of Technology, we would like to thank everyone who supported our attendance at the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists 41st Annual Meeting & Scientific Symposium in New Orleans on February 18-21.
This conference exposed us to many different, exciting parts of our future profession and allowed us to meet clinicians, students, and professionals from all across North America. The exposure that we, as a class, were able to gain into current research was incredibly valuable to facilitate our Capstone presentations in May 2016.
Without support from the many different people, companies, private clinics, and associations across Western Canada we would have not been able to attend this conference. We would like to extend our most sincere thanks and acknowledge our supporters for helping us reach our goal!
