EAST GREENWICH, R.I. (WPRI) – After over 250 people were injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, the New England Amputee Association (NEAA) has decided to expand into Rhode Island.
The association is partnering with Kent Hospital’s Outpatient Rehab Services to run informational meetings for amputees and their families.
The hospital says this will be the first time local amputees will have a place in state to meet and share their experiences.
NEAA meetings are free of charge and open to all amputees and their families. The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 23 from 4:15 to 6 p.m. at the hospital, located at 1351 South County Trail in East Greenwich in Building 2, Suite 200.
