Dr. Denise Elliot at the APMA’s 95th House of Delegates meeting in Washington, DC

Dr. Elliott, president of the Louisiana Podiatric Medical Association, is in Washington, D.C. this week making positive changes for the podiatry profession.

The American Podiatric Medical Association’s 95th House of Delegates meeting convened in Washington, DC, on Saturday, March 21. The meeting opened with addresses from staff and member leaders. Glenn B. Gastwirth, DPM, executive director and CEO, set the tone for the meeting by encouraging delegates to “think strategically and be prepared to take bold new steps forward.” He suggested APMA members should be proactive on behalf of the profession by taking steps such as joining the Podiatric Health Section of the American Public Health Association and using APMA’s eAdvocacy system to support our Helping Ensure Life- and Limb Saving Access to Podiatric Physicians (HELLPP) Act legislation.
