ABC celebrates 65 years

The American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics Inc. (ABC) is celebrating its 65th anniversary, according to a company news release.

ABC was founded in 1948 by Chester E. Haddon, CPO and established a mission supportive of high standards for clinical O&P care, which continues to guide the ABC board members and staff. ABC developed the first O&P accreditation program in the nation and implemented the first mandatory continuing education program for the profession.

ABC plans to celebrate this milestone all year long, and the initial celebration will kick off at the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association World Congress in Orlando September 18-21.
