In Short Podiatrist Reporters at The National The APMA Annual Scientific Meeting (The National) attracts media coverage from outlets across the country—and some right in our own backyard! If you are an APMA member and plan to attend The National as a reporter for any media outlet, e-mail Angela Berard at ahberard@apma.org to be credentialed as a member of the media. APMA’s policy is that anyone reporting on the meeting or taking photographs for publication must contact our Public Relations team to be registered as press for the meeting. This policy ensures that the Public Relations team will be aware of your presence and prepared to meet your needs. Please contact Berard by July 31. Physician Payment Sunshine Act FAQs APMA has received a number of questions regarding the Physician Payment Sunshine Act (PPSA), the section of the Affordable Care Act that requires drug and medical device companies to publicly report payments and other gifts made to physicians. In order to reduce confusion, APMA has developed a new, easy-toaccess FAQ reference for members, available at www. apma.org/sunshineactfaqs. This document provides answers to the most important questions regarding how PPSA will affect members and their practices. In the FAQs, you will find specific examples of physiciancompany interactions that will lead to disclosure. For more information on the PPSA, visit APMA’s healthcare reform page at www.apma.org/healthcarereform or contact the Health Policy and Practice Department at healthpolicy.hpp@apma.org. myFEET Campaign Leads to Thousands of APMA.org Visits During April’s Foot Health Awareness Month, teens across the country learned how foot health affects their lives through APMA’s campaign: “myFEET: Ditch the Pain!” The outreach effort was a tremendous success— through a combination of online advertising and social media outreach, APMA saw nearly 5,500 views on the myFEET campaign page. The campaign page was among the top five pages viewed during the month of April. On social media, APMA’s Twitter account gained 1,275 new followers and generated approximately 551,000 impressions. While Foot Health Awareness Month 2012 has ended, this important outreach effort to the teen population has only just begun. Here are some ways you can continue to educate this important age group: Visit the myFEET campaign page at www.apma. org/myfeet and link to this resource from your own practice website or social media network. Discuss APMA’s 2012 survey results on teen foot health with your teen patients and their parents. Request a free poster/brochure combo for your practice by e-mailing mskulick@apma.org. Share myFEET information and materials in your practice’s waiting room, as well as with other physicians in your local area.
