International Podiatry Day (IPD) is the global awareness Campaign which aims to spread the word about the importance of foot health.
Celebrated every year on the 8th of October, International Podiatry Day wants to become the biggest event focused on foot health around the world and the greatest effort to raise awareness on Podiatry both with the general public, other health professions and government health officials about the impact and the dangers of foot and ankle ailments.
Also in 2020 we are of course organizing an International Podiatry Day! More information will be shared later.
You can always check out the website of IPD for more information about the campaigns in 2018 and 2019.
The Foot and Ankle show is the event where practitioners , educators and manufacturers come together. The show informs, influences and shines a light on the innovation changing how care is delivered.
The Foot & Ankle Show will cover many areas in short 15min talks, with Keynote speakers covering topical themes in longer talks.
