Areas of interest | Oct 04th
We will talk to, and learn from, many different people within our community. People living with amputation/s, parents of children who were born with limb difference, prosthetic manufactures and others who share the journey with them, like: physiotherapists, doctors, nurses. We want to reach out to people in rural and remote areas of our enormous country who perhaps don’t have the contact and support that we, in larger towns or cities, have. We have indigenous people who have their own stories to tell. Our community is large, and we can learn so much from others.
