Amputee Coalition Launches Online Community for People Living With Limb Loss and Limb Difference
(March 1, 2023, Washington, D.C.) The Amputee Coalition today officially launched its new online community, AC Connect, the premier virtual space for connecting the limb loss and limb difference community. AC Connect offers a robust platform for ongoing discussions about the latest issues impacting people living with limb loss or limb difference, sharing stories, accessing a community directory, participating in virtual learning sessions, and connecting with special interest groups. It provides a place for amputees to continuously learn, develop a sense of belonging, gain exposure, and connect with each other.
“One of the Amputee Coalition’s key tenets is no amputee alone. To this end, we are committed to building community connections that are long-lasting. The Amputee Coalition developed the AC Connect online community to enhance the exchange of knowledge and experiences in ways that support individuals living with limb loss and limb difference to thrive,” said Jerrica Thurman, Amputee Coalition chief strategy and communications officer. “AC Connect places our community at the center and provides a space where value is created and shared all in one easily accessible destination available by mobile device or laptop.”
AC Connect is available to individuals registered with the Amputee Coalition for exclusive member benefits. It enables users to post messages, share files, download resources, watch videos, and collaborate with peers and industry leaders. With AC Connect, users can also create real connections, increase learning and professional development, provide feedback on critical issues impacting the limb loss and limb difference community, grow volunteer engagement, elevate their voice to advocate for people with limb loss and limb difference, and expand their network and social interactions.
