AOPA immediate past-president Anita Liberman-Lampear of University of Michigan Orthotics and Prosthetics Center has published an editorial in the Roanoke Times on the Dobson-DaVanzo research, funded by AOPA and commissioned by the Amputee Coalition, that used Medicare’s own data to prove that providing orthotics and prosthetics is cost-effective. The study was the basis for Mobility Saves, the public relations campaign where we are spreading the word to O&P providers, referral sources, payors, and patients that O&P saves Lives and Money.

Please note that at the time the editorial was submitted, Anita Liberman Lampear was the AOPA President of the Board of Directors. As of December 1, 2014, Charlie Dankmeyer, Jr., CPO is the current president.
