IPMA Podiatric Physicians Volunteer at Avon Walk for Breast Cancer

More than a dozen members of the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association volunteered at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Research held in Chicago on June 2-3. Participants raised $6.3 million to advance research to fight breast cancer. The podiatric physician volunteers were: Drs. Kathleen Daly, Marlene Reid, Mark Pietz,  Khalid Husain,  Michael Chin, Joseph Kim, Alice Cisneros, Mansoor Virani, Sarah Mahowald, Neil Horsley, Debra Young, Kathryn Grace, and Zacharia Facaros. Representatives from the American Society of Podiatric Medical Assistants-Illinois Chapter and students from the Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine also volunteered in the podiatry tent at the Avon Walk.

The volunteer podiatric physicians staffed the podiatry tent and treated a number of walkers who trekked 13 and 26 miles to raise funds for breast cancer research. Blisters, calluses, and sprained ankles were common ailments. Walkers could access a number of medical services during and after the racing, including the medical and physical therapy tent.
