APMA is interested in featuring YOU for upcoming awareness months, Black History Month in February and Women's History Month in March. Your insights and experiences offer valuable perspectives and contribute to raising awareness about important health-care issues facing the Black community and young women in the field of podiatry.
Black History Month
We aim to shed light on health disparities prevalent in the Black community, such as diabetes, hypertension, and related complications. It is important to emphasize the significance of preventative care measures, particularly the role of podiatrists in regular foot care and how early detection of conditions can be save lives and limbs. APMA invites you to speak on health disparities within the Black community and highlight the importance of seeking regular visits to a podiatrist.
