Orthotic & Prosthetic Technician Program Newsletter
Insights From the Editor-In-Chief
For the past eight years, I have worked as the Program Manager/Coordinator at the O&P Technology Program at Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC). Beginning in January 2022, I began working with the NCOPE serving as a communications specialist and liaison with the five (5) O&P Technology Programs that are scattered throughout the U.S. The NCOPE is now sponsoring the O&P Technology Programs newsletter and this is our first issue. Each issue will feature articles of interest for technicians and other O&P professionals. In addition, in each issue, the newsletter will highlight one of the five technician programs providing information and photos describing the program. I am constantly seeking new articles and welcome your help! Please don’t hesitate to send ideas or draft articles that you think will be of interest. And please tell your colleagues about the newsletter so that they can get on the email list. I look forward to hearing from you.
