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.
