LOCAL EVENTS:  

  • AMPEDUP  is our new Amputee Support Group.  It is a free community service.  This event is to support any amputee through all stages of limb loss.  What better way to learn about the process than to meet with other amputees going through similar circumstances?  These meetings are open.  They occur once per month.  It is scheduled the 3rd Friday of every month (subject to change due participation/other circumstances)  You can check out our blog about it.  You can call to register or go to our Facebook Page to the EVENT and click attending. #LicensedtoHeal #AmpedUp #GotoExcelRehab
