His ‘Why’: I first got involved with ROMP during summer of 2017 to support the prosthetic care provided to patients in Guatemala through surveying patients and improving aspects of clinic care. I have been impressed by how ROMP provides innovative care through the CBR program and supporting remote regions with continued prosthetic care. I have been excited to support ROMPs mission as a ROMP Ambassador by promoting and celebrating patient mobility with a prosthetic device through events like Climb for ROMP and Mobility May. ROMP is setting the bar for world-class prosthetic care to patients where needed.
