A Message from the CPMA President
I was very honored to be installed as the President of the Connecticut Podiatric Medical Association at the February Symposium. It was great to see so many familiar faces from around the state and I think I speak for everyone when I say that CPMA and the AAPSM put on a fantastic two-day conference.
As I mentioned in my President’s address, we have many initiatives that our Board will address this year. Our top priority will be to work with the Kowalski Group and our membership as we move legislatively to change the burdensome ankle law. We want to ensure that all well-trained Podiatric surgeons can fully utilize their surgical skills to best serve their patients and our communities. I will also work closely with the CPMA public relations committee, the newly established CPMA Foundation, and our members around the state to engage in community service and outreach programs. One on-going commitment will be to fully engage the Board’s insurance committee to stay abreast of the many issues that face our members.
There is no question that physicians and surgeons today face a number of challenges. I firmly believe, however, that our unique skillset separates us from other professions and because of that we remain a vital part of the healthcare system. I will always work for parity and equality when it comes to our profession.
