SUPPLEMENT TO APMA NEWS

PODIATRY, PUBLIC HEALTH, AND YOU
Many podiatrists, podiatric medical
students, and individuals interested
in lower-extremity health and wellbeing are members of the American
Public Health Association's (APHA)
Podiatric Health (POD) Section.
APHA, as a national organization,
champions the health of all people
and communities, and is the only
organization that combines a nearly
150-year perspective, a broad-based
member community, and the ability
to influence policy to improve public
health. APHA has a variety of member
unit groups called Sections (33 to be
exact), and POD is one of them.

I

f you are interested in health-care policy,
disparities, rural health care, access to
care, chronic conditions, or research, then
joining the POD Section is for you. The section includes a number of areas of interest,
including falls prevention, disaster preparedness, diabetic foot care and limb salvage,
volunteer work, foot screenings, global mission work, and the opioid crisis.
The POD Section encourages student participation and, as a partner in the effort, APMA
provides 10 student scholarships per podiatric
medical college (for a total of 90) for membership in APHA. Being a member of APHA and
the POD Section specifically will provide you
with opportunities for leadership, networking,

and mentorship with current POD Section
leaders and; eligibility to participate in the Outstanding APHA POD Section Student Public
Health Poster Abstract and Arthur E. Helfand,
DPM, Award at the APMA Annual Scientific
Meeting (The National); and eligibility for the
Leonard A. Levy, DPM, MPH Podiatric Health
Section Award. The membership scholarship
application will be available at www.apma.org/
publichealth starting December 2 and is due
by January 31.
Leonard A. Levy, DPM, MPH, a long-time
POD Section member and supporter, generously donated $35,000 to the POD Section
to create the Leonard A. Levy, DPM, MPH
Podiatric Health Section Award. This award
recognizes one outstanding podiatric student
or resident with a dedication to and passion
for public health each year for 10 years. The
first $3,500 award was presented this year
at the APHA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia
to Kelsey Millonig, DPM, MPH. She earned
her DPM and MPH degrees from Des Moines
University College of Podiatric Medicine and
Surgery and College of Health Sciences,
respectively. Dr. Millonig was a research
intern in the Department of Aging and Life
Course at the World Health Organization in
Geneva, Switzerland, and has an interest in
lower-extremity global health. The application
for the Leonard A. Levy, DPM, MPH Podiatric
Health Section Award will be available online
in summer 2020.

2019 POD Section members at the Business Meeting on November 5 in Philadelphia.

One of the eligibility
criteria for this award
is membership in the
POD Section. Podiatric
medical students who
are POD Section
members are also
eligible for other
awards that recognize
outstanding contributions
to the field and elevating
podiatric public health.
The POD Section invites and encourages students, residents, practicing
podiatric physicians and surgeons, and
non-podiatrists interested in lower extremity health and well-being to be part of the
section. For more information about the
APHA Pod Section, visit https://apha.org/
