The Connecticut Podiatric Medical Association (CPMA) is an organization dedicated to serving its membership through education, public awareness, and government representation. It also provides representation to healthcare provider communities-at-large, healthcare reimbursement agencies, and national podiatric organizations.


Welcome to CPMA - President's Message

The Connecticut Podiatric Medical Association is the premier professional organization representing Connecticut’s Doctors of Podiatric Medicine.

Over the next few months, your CPMA board has several important initiatives that we will undertake. For our members, we will present a Sports Medicine and Cadaveric Workshop in September and are also working on our Winter Symposium which will again take place at the Marriott Hartford Downtown. For the Community at large, CPMA and local podiatrists are taking a leading role in community events such as The Connecticut Special Olympics and the Footwear with Care Program. On the Legislative front, we continue to work on insurance related issues as well as the current ankle law which we seek to revise.

CPMA remains one of the most active medical societies in the State of Connecticut and I am proud of the work that your board continue to do on our behalf.

Peter Blume, DPM, FACFAS

Important Moments in Podiatric History

On July 1, 1912, 225 charter members gathered in Chicago to organize a national association dedicated to the needs of practicing Chiropodists (currently termed Podiatrists)

On December 7, 1941, with the bombing of Pearl Harbor, America at last entered World War II. Nearly 37 percent of the members of the National Association of Chiropodists (NAC) served in the armed services during the war.

The new executive director of the NAC, William J. Stickel, DSC, aggressively promoted the profession and its role in defending the nation through his “Keep America Marching” campaign. He also issued press releases about NAC members’ service and ran a full-page ad in Life Magazine in 1943.
