                                                       A PEER Visitor is a Nationally Certified amputee limb loss counselor who takes the 8 hour Certified PEER Visitor
                                                       course and becomes certified through the Amputee Coalition which is a national organization dedicated
                                                       to supporting limb loss in the United States. Certified PEER Visitors have experienced limb loss themselves
                                                       and understand the physical and emotional ramifications of experiencing amputation and living with limb loss.
