A Message from the President

I was very honored to be installed as the President of the Connecticut Podiatric Medical Association at the February Symposium. It was great to see so many familiar faces from around the state and I think I speak for everyone when I say that CPMA and the AAPSM put on a fantastic two-day conference.

In my President’s address, we have many initiatives that our Board will address this year. Our top priority will be to work with the Kowalski Group and our membership as we move legislatively to change the burdensome ankle law. We want to ensure that all well-trained Podiatric surgeons can fully utilize their surgical skills to best serve their patients and our communities. I will also work closely with the CPMA public relations committee, the newly established CPMA Foundation, and our members around the state to engage in community service and outreach programs. One on-going commitment will be to fully engage the Board’s  insurance committee to stay abreast of the many issues that face our members.

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.
