President's Message

Giving and Receiving
As the holiday season approaches, I'm reflecting on the concepts of giving
and receiving.
So many have given so much to me on my professional journey. My wife and
family deserve my greatest thanks for selflessly sharing me with my APMA family for the past 12 years. My APMA family, my home away from home, also deserves my gratitude. During my tenure on the APMA Board of Trustees, I have
had the great privilege of serving with 25 of our profession's greatest supporters,
visionaries, and servants. Thank you to each of you for your commitment to
podiatry and to your association. The APMA family also includes the loyal team
at APMA headquarters. Our profession is truly blessed to have you. Thank you.
Our industry allies are another dedicated part of the APMA team. In this issue, we devote a special section to them and their many contributions to podiatric medicine and surgery (see page 14). They are a significant part of what we
are able to do for you, our members. Join me in thanking them, and please
consider them when you make decisions or recommendations about products
and services for your practice.
Finally, I give thanks for you, our members. APMA exists to serve its
members. I extend my deepest gratitude to you for choosing APMA to meet
your needs. Your loyalty, your commitment, and your participation are greatly appreciated.
APMA enjoys one of the highest participation rates of any national medical
professional association. But we are always working to give more and to do
better for you. It is said that a gift not opened is a gift not received. As an APMA
member, you receive many benefits. It's important that you take advantage of
the resources your association offers.
I urge you to do a few simple things to take better advantage of your APMA
membership:
Read your publications. They take a few minutes to open and skim
through, and you'll learn so much about what's happening at APMA and
how we're advocating for you. Watch for Monday Minute videos, the
Tuesday Weekly Focus email, and the Thursday News Brief. Be sure to
catch APMA News and JAPMA every other month, as well.
Visit the APMA website. There are so many resources there, and if you
need an overview, you can find it at www.apma.org/services.
If you're a young physician, visit the Young Physician Transition Series
(YPTS). The YPTS, available at www.apma.org/ypts, is a convenient online repository of every tool you may need, broken out by each stage of
your early career. It includes career development resources, student loan
debt tools, a podcast, infographics, and much more.
Investigate our newest resource, APMA Health-Care Solutions. Our insurance offerings could save your practice 15-30 percent. If health-care costs
are draining your wallet, visit www.apma.org/healthcaresolutions today.

I've always received more from you, my extended professional family, than
I have given. Thank you for the gift of serving this year as your president. I wish
you a blessed holiday season!

David G. Edwards, DPM, President
