Garden City, NY (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
Members and guests of the NAPW Baltimore Local Chapter met June 20 for a professional networking meeting at Alpert’s Perfectly You, 10912 Reisterstown Road, Ownings Mills. Owned and operated by member Teresa Alpert-Leibman, a certified Orthotist, members were treated to an informative overview of Teresa’s expertise in prosthetics and enjoyed an evening of networking.
Highlighting a member’s career each month was the brainchild of Teresa, who made the suggestion at last May’s meeting, that members should take turns hosting the networking meetings. All of the members agreed and NAPW Baltimore Local Chapter President Jennifer Garcia suggested Teresa have the honor of being the first host. Teresa enthusiastically agreed.
As a certified Orthotist, Teresa is a trained healthcare professional whose expertise includes orthopedic and somatic prostheses. She patiently explained to members about her business and went into particular detail about her work with breast cancer patients. All members found the evening to be extremely informative and interesting, said the Chapter President.
“Teresa gave a tour of her facility and discussed the range of medical equipment, supplies, and orthodontic products she offers such as prosthetic limbs. Among her products were breast prostheses for breast cancer patients who’ve undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Those in attendance were amazed at how accurate the breast prostheses were and that they come in a range of colors to match the patient’s skin tone,” said Jennifer.
Member Jennifer Garcia said, “Having toured her facility, I came away with a much better understanding of the products and services Teresa offers,” said Jennifer Garcia.
The host for next month’s meeting, which will be held July 18 at 5:30pm, will be member Tamera Swan- Mason. Tamera will give a presentation about her bath products business White Swan, Inc. The networking meeting/pool party will be held at her home.
