Guidelines for Call for Cases

With our 2017 American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine/Illinois Podiatric Medical Association Alliance Meeting just months away, we wanted to put out an official call for cases for an interesting workshop taking place on Thursday, September 14, 2017.
 
The workshop – headed by AAPSM Fellow John Grady, DPM – will feature difficult heel pain cases.  If you would like to participate in this workshop – which will be limited to the first 35 registrants but will be offered twice – we urge you to send to AAPSM Executive Director Rita Yates a 4-5 PowerPoint slide presentation outlining your case.  We are only accepting a limited number of cases to discuss due to time restraints.  Priority will be given to the earliest submissions or what might be deemed difficult cases. 
 
Deadline for submitting slides/cases for consideration will be August 15.  Send your information to Rita Yates at ritayates2@aol.com.  Look forward to seeing you in September!
