  • APTA CEO Moore Joins Amputee Coalition Board

    APTA Chief Executive Officer Justin Moore, PT, DPT, has been unanimously elected to serve a four-year term on the Board of the Amputee Coalition, a leading national advocacy organization.

    The Amputee Coalition serves the more than two million Americans with limb loss and limb difference and more than 28 million at risk for amputation. Its mission is to raise awareness for and advocate on behalf of that population on Capitol Hill, and ensure that legislators and policymakers are educated about the unique needs of this community. The coalition’s work helps to secure the services, supports, and resources for individuals to live the lives they want to live.

    Moore will join 11 other board members who advise the organization on initiatives including federal policy outreach, insurance protections for patients, the organization’s National Limb Loss Resource Center, summer youth camp, and hospital partnerships.

    “Having Justin join our esteemed board of directors strengthens our ability to make progress toward our strategic goals and grow the coalition,” said Coalition CEO Mary Richards. “We all look forward to his vision, leadership, and insights about the federal policy landscape and how we can best serve our community.”

    “I am honored to have been elected to the Board of Directors of the Amputee Coalition," Moore said. “Clearly the coalition’s mission closely reflects APTA’s own vision — transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience — which makes this position all the more significant to us. I look forward to working with the coalition to advocate for those they serve.”
