3.75 continuing education contact hours (CECH). The Virtual Coding Seminar took place on April 25 with 523 registrants (see article on page 18).
Member-Exclusive Online CECH: On the heels of the very
successful Virtual Coding Seminar, APMA launched an Online CECH series of lunchtime webinars to help meet members' needs for continuing education in light of many canceled in-person events. Learn more at www.apma.org/
onlinecech.
REdRC: APMA encouraged students and residents who
were distance-learning to take advantage of the Residency
Education Resource Center (www.redrc.org) to help supplement their education, with online lectures from experts
designed for residents in all three years of training.
Ankle Fractures iBook: APMA released its Lauge-Hansen
Ankle Fractures iBook, edited by Dyane Tower, DPM, MPH,
MS, APMA director of Clinical Affairs. The text, which
supports accurate diagnoses in the complex anatomy of the
ankle, is available for download at www.apma.org/
studentresources, and is well suited for students, residents,
or anyone wishing to brush up on their diagnostic skills.
Student Webinar: Nearly 100 current students enjoyed a webinar with a panel of fourth-year students designed to allow an
opportunity for advice on thriving in podiatric medical school.

Advocacy
* APMA sought clarification from the federal government
about the Provider Relief Fund, clearing the way for podiatrists to take advantage of relief payments.
* APMA has been in constant contact with congressional
leadership and staff to help ensure inclusion of DPMs in
any and all relief packages and to ensure that podiatrists are
classified as "essential" during the pandemic. The association specifically advocated for relief up to 90 percent of
salary and for incentives to rehire practitioners laid off as a
result of COVID-19.
* APMA submitted multiple comment letters, all of which
can be found on the APMA Advocacy tab of the COVID-19
resource page at www.apma.org/covid19.
* APMA signed on to joint letters with other medical professional societies to Congress or federal agencies about personal protective equipment, telehealth, and workforce enhancement post-pandemic. The association also signed on
to letters to private payers urging them to follow CMS telehealth guidance.
As the situation progresses and the country begins to reopen, APMA will continue to match its tools and resources to
the demonstrated needs of member podiatrists. We encourage you to watch APMA communications (see sidebar) and
visit the COVID-19 resource page often to find the latest resources. If you can't find what you need, contact APMA staff
