American Diabetes Month Events at Montefiore
Limb Loss Awareness Month Events at Montefiore
The loss of a limb presents many challenges, not only with the obvious physical loss but also the loss in function, self-image, career, and relationships. It’s not surprising that roughly a third of amputees experience depression, increased dependency, and significant levels of social isolation.
Fortunately, there are many support groups and resources available to those with limb loss or limb difference and their families. This month features a multitude of options to connect, share stories, and be active with others.
