This immersive experience is designed to inspire and equip the next generation of healthcare providers with the knowledge and skills necessary for success in the field.
As part of the camp’s agenda, keynote speaker Lou Figueroa will share his extraordinary story of overcoming adversity and achieving personal and professional growth after a life-altering train accident.

Attendees will hear Lou’s amazing story of survival and his transformation from a wheelchair to walking again. This 45-minute presentation highlights Lou’s recovery and focuses on collaborative care.
The Limb Care Foundation is dedicated to providing a comprehensive and transformative experience for all Prosthetic Summer Camp participants. To ensure the success of this event and its mission to empower aspiring healthcare professionals, the foundation invites companies and organizations to consider sponsoring the camp. Sponsorship opportunities not only provide crucial financial support, but also allow businesses to align themselves with a meaningful cause and contribute to the development of future healthcare leaders.
“Limb care health in general is a very small field. As we age longer, there’s a greater need for people in this profession to be trained on how to see a patient who has these needs, so supporting this event will support the future generation of young Orthotists and Prosthetists and other people in the health field that can hopefully help people for years moving forward,“ said Laduan Smedley, President of Limb Care Foundation.
He continues, “With amputations and diabetes the way it is the amputation rate is always going up. In the field as a whole there’s only a couple thousand orthotists and prosthetists in the whole nation. It’s a very, very, very small field, so we really need to inspire the future Generations so that we can continue to support people.”
