Amputee Coalition National Conference

July 25, 2019

The Amputee Coalition National Conference is the place to be and be seen! It is the premier meeting event for the limb loss community. In 2019, the conference was right here in our hometown of San Antonio! Many of our members were able to attend thanks to a generous donation from Dr. & Mrs. Karia and their family.

 

In 2020, join us in Washington, D.C., for three days of fun, learning, hands-on clinics and workshops in a unique setting where people with limb loss are the norm, not the exception. This event is a perfect opportunity to meet new friends, socialize with other people with limb loss, and network.
