  • 2008 Academy Annual Meeting: Submission Deadline is TODAY

    ***DEADLINE: JULY 31, 2007***

    The Academy Annual Meeting provides outstanding clinical and
    professional education sessions and is the ideal setting for you to
    share your expertise with O&P practitioners and industry professionals
    while earning unparalleled recognition from your peers.

    Mark your calendar for next year's Academy Annual Meeting, which will be
    held at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, February 27 - March 1,

    Choose from a variety of presentation opportunities:

    Thranhardt Lecture Series: All abstracts must be original work,
    attributable to the author. Based upon the submitted abstracts, not more
    than four presentations will be chosen as potential recipients of the
    Thranhardt Lecture Series honorarium. These presentations will be
    delivered at the Annual Meeting. The two best presentations will be
    determined based upon content, delivery, clinical, and scientific
    relevance of the presentation. Two $500 honoraria will be awarded to the
    selected presentations.

    Free Papers: Free Paper submissions are intended to offer solutions to
    common problems, patient and practice management techniques, innovative
    uses of technology, or current research findings. The content and/or
    presentation of the information will promote quality or improvements in
    orthotic or prosthetic care, and will not promote a specific proprietary
    business or commercial interest. Content for this activity, including
    any presentation of therapeutic options, should be unbiased and, as much
    as possible, based on evidence.

    Poster Presentations: Provide a forum for a one-to-one, in-depth
    discussion using narrative and visual material to display and
    communicate the objectives, methods, results, and conclusions of a
    specific research study or illustrate a piece of equipment, technique,
    program, etc.

    Submissions may be made in either of two ways:

    1. Submit online: Visit

    and fill out the online
    submission form.

    2. Downloadable PDF Format: Visit

    and print out the form (PDF
