Don Cummings, Alumnus of the Prosthetics-Orthotics Program

Don Cummings was a freshman in college when he caught bacterial meningitis, and as a result, had to have amputations on both legs. Through the process of his own rehabilitation and using prostheses, he became interested in working with people with disabilities and the field of Prosthetics-Orthotics. Don also knew he wanted to work in pediatrics, which led him to a residency and a career at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.
