The CPMA Foundation's vital program, Footwear with Care, delivers durable and well-fitting walking shoes and boots as well as medical foot exams to homeless children and adults in Hartford, Connecticut. Donate now to help!

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)

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.
