CPMA Foundation Spotlight - Footwear With Care

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!

NPR's Here & Now featured the December 8th Winter Boot Party held at the Christ Church Cathedral in Hartford. About 400 people received boots and fresh socks at the event with podiatrists helping with foot exams for the attendees.

The need is still great; there were more people than could be serviced at the event. Please consider donating to help more of Hartford's homeless receive quality footwear this winter.


A Message from the CPMA President

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.
