Northwest Component Hosts Car Show/Cruise In to Benefit the ADA

Members of the FPMA Northwest component participated in the 20th Annual ADA Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes on December 1, 2012 at Maritime Park in downtown Pensacola, Florida. During the event, they also hosted the 1st Annual Classic Car Show/Cruise In for local car enthusiasts to display their vehicles. The Show was open to all types of vehicles and the fee for participating in the event was $26.00 (this amount was based on the number of children and adults living with diabetes in the U.S.: 26 million).

Dr. Mark Lambert, FPMA Northwest Component President, reported that over 500 people attended the Step Out Walk and the Car Show. There were 36 show cars registered for the event and the component raised a total of $2,895 for the American Diabetes Association.

FPMA commends the Northwest Component for going the extra mile to help the ADA fund research to prevent, cure, and manage diabetes.

Broward Component Volunteers at A1A Marathon

The FPMA Broward component served as a sponsor of the Ft. Lauderdale A1A Marathon, which was held on February 19, 2012 along Ft. Lauderdale beach. Dr. Diana Rogers led three podiatry residents from Westside Regional Hospital in volunteering in the medical tent. Dr. Rogers and the podiatry residents treated numerous blisters and foot problems as well as playing an integral part with the medical team treating dehydration, heat exhaustion, and numerous medical emergencies. The Podiatrists worked hand in hand with the medical students from Florida International University and the EMS staff to treat many runners.

We appreciate Dr. Rogers and the Westside residents for giving up their Sunday morning and representing Broward podiatric physicians.
