CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- BridgePoint Medical, LLC's partner, Charlotte Orthotic and Prosthetic Center (COPC), announced today that Amy Street, CP has joined COPC's practitioner care team as Staff Prosthetist and will assume the responsibility for prosthetic care at the Charlotte facility.
