Join NAAOP

“The members and staff of the NAAOP are the most dedicated and passionate group I’ve had the pleasure of working with in the advocacy world. Peter Thomas and George Breece bring a wealth of knowledge, focus and influence that enable us to effectively advocate for changes in public policy that benefit those with limb loss, limb difference and the clinical professionals who serve them. Our members shape our vision for the future and our team executes on that vision. It is an honor to represent this community.”

  Maggie Baumer, JD NAAOP President
