Larry Lange’s Legacy

Established in 2007, in honor and memory of Larry Lange, CPO, FAAOP, this award recognizes the outstanding practice/education of a current or recent graduate of an NCOPE Orthotic/Prosthetic Residency Program. Larry dedicated over 27 years to the O&P profession and to the patients he served. He gave richly of his talents by volunteering his time and energy to national O&P organizations. One example was his service to ABC and his 22 years as examiner for the clinical patient management exams. Larry believed in furthering one’s education as evidence by his pursuit and attainment of the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists fellow designation.
