2021 Annual Symposium

Advancing Podiatry, Preventing Tragedy


After a Year Away,

CPMA welcomes you to reconnect with fellow podiatrists and vendors while learning about the latest in the field of podiatry and healthcare at large. In addition to covering topics like postoperative infection management, diabetic amputation prevention, and crucial Medicare updates, we’ll look at some of the most pressing issues facing all medical professionals today. How do we prevent physician suicide? How do we handle active shooter situations in healthcare facilities? How can we stop the Opioid Epidemic in its tracks?

Register today for what is sure to be one of the most engaging Symposiums in recent memory.
