AAPSM Votes to Rename Golden Foot Award to Honor John Pagliano, DPM

In an acknowledgement of the legacy of the late Dr. John Pagliano, the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine recently voted to change the name of its current “Golden Foot Award” to the “John Pagliano Golden Foot Award”.  The name change honors the unique and important contributions of Dr. Pagliano in the field of podiatric sports medicine.   Many of our members have stated that it was Dr. Pagliano’s passion, energy and leadership that inspired them to pursue a career in podiatry. “As both an accomplished athlete and a pioneer in sports medicine we feel he is the perfect embodiment of the award,” stated current AAPSM President Paul Langer, DPM.

The John Pagliano Golden Foot Award will continue to be presented to individuals who, through effort and example, have significantly contributed to the public awareness of the importance of physical fitness and the role of podiatric sports medicine in the care of the athlete. Past recipients of the award have included; David Beckham, Walter Payton, Warren Moon, and Alberto Salazar, to name a few.

The AAPSM and the sports medicine community owe a debt of gratitude to the accomplishments of Dr. Pagliano and hope this award given annually in his name will remain a small part of sustaining his great legacy.

Each child will run 50 meters. The event is a fundraiser for world hunger and is also done to promote running/fitness for children. The event tomorrow in Minnesota is the first and (so far) only U.S. attempt

Keep Kids in the Game for Life Through the STOP Sports Injuries Campaign

Stop Sports Injuries

Healthcare and, Business Leaders, and Ocala, Florida - Today, leaders of Professional Athletes Join Forces to Help Young Athletes Play Safe and Stay Healthy!

The American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine (AAPSM) are coming together with the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, National Athletic Trainers' Association, National Strength and Conditioning Association and Safe Kids USA to promote the STOP Sports Injuries campaign.

The campaign educates athletes, parents, athletic trainers, coaches and healthcare providers about the rapid increase in youth sports injuries, the necessary steps to help reverse the trend and the need to keep young athletes healthy. The STOP Sports Injuries campaign highlights include teaching proper prevention techniques, discussing the need for open communication between everyone involved in young athletes' lives, and encouraging those affected to sign The Pledge to be an advocate for sports safety.

The campaign website and pledge are available at
www.STOPSportsInjuries.org.

Sports injuries among young athletes are on the rise. According to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), high school athletes, alone, account for an estimated two million injuries, 500,000 doctor visits and 30,000 hospitalizations every year. The high rate of youth sports injuries is fueled by an increase in overuse and trauma injuries and a lack of attention paid to proper injury prevention. According to the CDC, more than half of all sports injuries in children are preventable.

"Regardless of whether the athlete is a professional, an amateur, an Olympian or a young recreational athlete, the number of sports injuries is increasing - but the escalation of injuries in kids is the most alarming," said Dr. James Andrews, former president of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and STOP Sports Injuries Co-Campaign Chair. "Armed with the correct information and tools, today's young athletes can remain healthy, play safe, and stay in the game for life."

Supporting the STOP Sports Injuries campaign are the country's leading sports medicine organizations along with professional athletes and business leaders who have signed on as members of the campaign's Council of Champions. This Council will help raise additional awareness about this growing epidemic of youth sports injuries. Some of the founding members of the Council include former Olympic champions Christie Rampone, Eric Heiden and Bonnie Blair, professional golfer Jack Nicklaus, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr, MLB baseball player John Smoltz, NFL Hall of Fame defensive end, Howie Long, and Heisman Trophy winner and St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.
