OPGA was on the road in March, and that has continued in April. We started March with an amazing Academy Annual Meeting in Nashville, where we were grateful to have been able to connect with OPGA members, supplier partners, and O&P stakeholders face to face.  

Being active in state and regional advocacy efforts is fundamental to OPGA’s mission of being involved in grassroots-level advocacy, and we are proud to support these efforts. In March, we were able to attend and exhibit at the Ohio Chapter of AAOP’s Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio. Thanks for having us and to all who attended. 

April started off the same way, as we were proud to support and exhibit at the Northwest Chapter of AAOP’s 2023 Conference in Portland Oregon from April 6-8 as well. 

So many great initiatives and efforts are being made across the country, and OPGA will continue to lend its support to furthering the mission of these wonderful associations and organizations. 

We know how important involvement is for these meetings and conferences, and in the coming months we will be attending many more. We hope to see you there, and as always, thanks for everything you do for our profession and the patients you serve. 

 Adam Miller

President, OPGA
