Diane responded: “I decided to go into Orthotics and Prosthetics to help people get back to daily living after having injury to, or loss of limb. This is especially important for the Veterans who have fought for our freedom and have a need for the custom prosthetics we can provide. I am learning so much in my program and hope to graduate with the ability to create quality products for those in need. Thank you.”
