Notes:

The Union Leader featured a story on 6/6/17 on Harun, a student that Penny Demos works with at school. She is quoted as saying, "Nothing can stop him now." She helped him get a 3D printed hand to improve function and self esteem. Learn about the process and the ups and downs of trialing this new prosthetic. Come see where they are now. New time and venue for Youth SIS!
