TOM: Pittsburgh - Looking Forward to 2023 and Potential Collaboration with Camp STAR!

The "Ability Tech Ecosystem" has been instrumental in connecting us with "Cmpa STAR". This network of professionals and organizations, all dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities, was the key to establishing this partnership. The ecosystem made it posible for TOM:Pittsburgh to collaborate with the Amputee Youth Camp. This proves the value of our ecosystem - it's a place where people come together, share ideas, and create powerful solutions that really change lives.

"Since 1976, Camp STAR has been committed to empowering and supporting youth amputees to keep healthy, confident, and stay active. It was a great opportunity to stand in front of these children and share what we were doing. UPMC, another hospital from New Jersey, Pitt students, and the campers were really excited about what we were doing, especially on TOM prosthesis development and we plan to collaborate with them on the fellowship program.

TOM: Pittsburgh has big plans brewing for 2023, and we are excited to potentially have you be a part of our journey.

We've been working hard on new plans to boost our work with people with disabilities, and we're excited to share some updates with you. This past year has been amazing - full of creativity, community-building, and teamwork.

One thing we're really excited about is a possible partnership with Camp STAR. This wonderful group has been helping young amputees gain confidence and build friendships for nearly 50 years. We feel that working together, we can do even more good.

We're hoping to combine our tech know-how with Camp STAR's mission. Together, we think we can create more welcoming and empowering spaces for young amputees.

That's just a taste of what we have planned for 2023. We hope you're as excited as we are! If you have any thoughts or ideas, or want to discuss ways we can collaborate, please reach out. We'd love to hear from you and explore ways we can work together to make a big difference.

Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to shape the future of our organization and strengthen our community. Here's to a year filled with collaboration, innovation, and empowerment!
