- Lyons P&O
Alexander Lyons, CPO, President of Lyons Prosthetics and Orthotics (P&O), Inc. recently presented his annual in-service at the Academy Of Technology Nursing Program covering the basics of the Orthotic and Prosthetic profession.
Mr. Lyons’ goal for this talk was to expose these high school juniors, who are specializing in the healthcare fields, to various areas of medicine, including O&P, and to encourage them with their academic pursuits. Also present for lab assistance was Evelyn Lyons, PT who is an active employee with Lyons P&O.
Some of the topics discussed were education requirements, career paths, current Medical trends, and the rise of diabetes with complications such as amputations. Janet Hodge, RN and Teresa R. Nirenstein, DC, both Health Science/Pre-Med Instructors took the initiative to bring Alexander Lyons, CPO in for this talk in hopes that it would broaden the student’s education in the medical field.
Dr. Teresa R. Nirenstein recently wrote a thank you note to Alexander Lyons saying “Thank you for coming and sharing with our classes. I have the students write about what they learn from our speakers. Four of my students included that you gave the best and most informative presentation. I appreciate you taking your time to prepare so well. It was a great lesson in compassion too!“.
