Founded in 1912, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), headquartered in Bethesda, MD, is the leading resource for foot and ankle health information. Currently, the organization represents a vast majority of the estimated 15,000 podiatrists in the country. In addition to the national headquarters, APMA boasts 53 state component locations throughout the United States and its territories, as well as affiliated societies.
Rep. Brad Wenstrup, DPM (R-OH), the first podiatrist to serve as a US Congressman, will open The National with a keynote address Thursday morning. Now in his third term, Dr. Wenstrup, a veteran of the Iraq war and Army Reserve officer, has distinguished himself not only as a legislator, but also as a powerful advocate for veterans and the profession of podiatry. Dr. Wenstrup is the primary sponsor of APMA’s VA Provider Equity Act. The legislation would allow podiatrists serving within the Veterans Health Administration the same professional opportunities their allopathic and osteopathic colleagues enjoy, easing recruitment challenges that currently jeopardize quality health care for veterans.
