Dale Berry, CP, CP©, FAAOP, was a prosthetic resident in Edmonton, Alberta at Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital, from 1980-1983, where he learned the critical importance of clinical documentation when it comes to providing adequate, quality patient care. After moving to the US in 1986, his proactive approach to ensuring concise and compliant patient health records remained an indispensable part of his dedication to providing quality care to local residents.

He then served 20 years as Vice President of Clinical Operations of the country's largest provider of Orthotics and Prosthetics, keeping his focus on documentation, compliance, and operational controls.

The Dale Berry Orthotics and Prosthetics Endowed Scholarship was established to promote the essential relationship between quality clinical documentation and quality patient care.

Jennifer Fritz, Interim Dean of College of Health and Human Services, said, “Your contribution will provide much-needed financial support for our students and programs, expanding our capacity to impact our communities and health professions broadly.”
