The American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA) leadership has been monitoring the COVID-19 developments and after careful consideration has decided to cancel the 2020 Policy Forum scheduled for May 5-6 in Washington DC. This was an extremely difficult decision given the importance of our advocacy agenda, but ultimately the health and safety of our members and their patients were the top priority.
However, this doesn’t mean we won’t be taking our issues to policymakers. Instead of the in-person event, we are in the process of developing a virtual version of the Policy Forum to be held on the same days. To advance our agenda we need your voices so, please continue to hold those dates on your calendar. We will be in touch soon with additional information.
Thank you for your understanding as well as your continued support and advocacy of the O&P profession and the patients its serves.
