2010 ADA Step Out Logo

2010

The FPMA Committee on Public Affairs partnered with several key chapters of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) in Florida and FPMA served as one of the sponsors of six separate Step Out to Fight Diabetes Walks that took place across the state in 2010. In addition to forming walking teams, FPMA components had displays set up at the Walks, manned by members, and provided free foot screenings to attendees of the events. This type of recurrent statewide sponsorship is the first of several targeted markets that the Committee on Public Affairs is planning as part of FPMA's long-term strategic plan.

We hope that individual FPMA members and component societies continue to get involved in these events as they take place in their areas. FPMA continues to strive to educate the public and health care community on the educational expertise that Today’s Podiatric Physician possesses.

FPMA members participated in the following six Florida Step Out Walk events in 2010 and raised a total of $5,775:

Fort Lauderdale Step Out Event (10/23/10)

Jacksonville Step Out Event (11/6/10)
