on February 16, 2022
OPGA is excited to announce the launch of a new podcast series, Women Leaders in O&P. These podcasts will feature stories from women leaders in the orthotics and prosthetics profession or users of orthotic or prosthetic devices and their stories.
“There are so many women in the O&P profession doing important, impactful work," said Ashlie White. "I am incredibly excited to highlight the stories of some of these women leaders who are making a difference every single day!”
The first episode features an interview between Ashlie White, the 2021 O&P Woman of the Year (presented by OPGA) and the director of health policy and strategic alliance for AOPA, and Nikki Grace-Strader, the incoming fellow for NAAOP and also the director of North American operations for the Osseo Integration Group of Australia and Osseo Integration Group International. Nikki is also an above knee amputee, a certified peer visitor, certified peer visitor trainer with the Amputee Coalition, and executive director of a nonprofit, Central Illinois Amputees. Nikki’s passion for the O&P profession stemmed through her own experiences as an amputee and figuring out how to get around access barriers put in place by insurance providers.
