According to a well-known proverb: “if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.”
Looking back at the past year I could not be prouder of what the American Limb Preservation Society (ALPS) has accomplished. ALPS was founded in 2020, and since then our society has grown and evolved from a small group of people passionate about limb preservation, to a member-based nonprofit, 501c3 of “sole-brothers” and “sole-sisters”. The mission of ALPS is to eliminate all preventable amputations over the next generation. We believe in order to do this, we must create pathways and infrastructure for multidisciplinary limb preservation teams with diverse expertise to work together and collaborate, to ensure the best patient outcomes.
That is why we are writing you today. One of this year’s objectives, was to establish a networking platform that would connect healthcare professional in limb preservation from different fields and specialties, and we did it!
We would like to invite you to be a member of ALPS. As a member of ALPS, you can access ALPS’ networking platform to learn from other experts in the field, or to build your own virtual limb preservation team.
If you are already a member of ALPS go into your own personal profile and update your information, so others can reach you and see what you are doing in limb preservation. This platform can be used to maintain relationships with healthcare professionals you met at ALPS conference, DFCon, or it can be used to meet new connections and keep up to date with what is happening in limb preservation.
We are excited to bring this membership benefit to fruition and are striving to make it the best networking tool it can be. As you begin using this platform, we would like to hear your feedback or suggestions. Please feel free to reach to ALPS CEO, Georgia Krehbiel.
