I’ve always been passionate about education. It was, in fact, my enjoyment of learning that spurred me to earn an advanced degree directly after finishing my bachelor’s degree. Since then I have been fortunate in my professional life to be presented with circumstances that reinforce my belief in the value of lifelong learning. As I write this, I have just returned from another such opportunity as I attended the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists’ (the Academy’s) 40th Annual Meeting & Scientific Symposium. Throughout the event, the educational sessions offered a variety of opportunities to learn more about approaches to O&P patient care, technology, outcome measures, and practice management-information that is invaluable to practitioners but also to people like me who seek to broaden our knowledge as laypeople.
