Pride boosts gov’t relations role

Monday, March 31, 2008

EXETER, Pa. – Pride Mobility Products ramped up its government affairs efforts in March when it hired Julie Piriano, an ATP-certified PT, as director of rehab industry affairs, focusing largely on complex
rehab issues.
Piriano sits on the RESNA Professional Standards Board and is a friend of NRRTS. She also belongs to the APTA and the Illinois Association of Medical Equipment Suppliers. Most recently, Piriano worked as the rehab/MCO manager for Apria.
In other news, Pride conducted a grassroots campaign in late February aimed at preserving the first-month purchase option for power wheelchairs. HME
