This Year's APMA Recap
Every summer, members of Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine (CPM) faculty, staff and student bodies pack up and head to the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Annual Scientific Meeting. The meeting, dubbed The National, is hosted in a new US city each year, with this year’s location being Salt Lake City, UT. While CPM’s alumni booth graces The National exhibit hall in every city, if you were at the conference in Salt Lake City this July, you may have noticed CPM garnering a bit more attention than usual! Here are a few big wins CPM snagged during this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting:
A $5,000 Scholarship from Sebela Pharmaceuticals
Earlier this year, Sebela Pharmaceuticals announced that it would be awarding an unrestricted $5,000 Step Up scholarship to a student from a school of podiatric medicine. Attendees at The National were able to vote for the winning school once a day during exhibit hours and thanks to YOU, CPM brought the scholarship home! Big thank you to everyone that voted!
CPM Student Tung Dao, MSIV Took Home the Student Quiz Bowl Trophy
The APMA Student Quiz Bowl is a National Meeting tradition in which one representative from each of the nine accredited podiatry colleges answer categorized questions with weighted point values based on the difficulty of the question. The final question of each round allows contestants to wager their points. After three rounds, the finalist from each round competes for the trophy. For the second year in a row, CPM is bringing home the trophy! Congratulations to this year’s winner, Tung Dao, MSIV, on his victory! We are so proud!
