This week, the Florida Public Health Association (FPHA) met for its 126th Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL. This year’s theme centered on disaster preparedness. Participating and in attendance was Chet Evans, MS, DPM, past chair and long-time member of the Podiatric Health Section of the American Public Health Association.

Dr. Evans encouraged all podiatric physicians to join the American Public Health Association, or at least their state component and have a voice in these issues. He is currently the Executive Director of the Rollins College Center for Health Innovation and was Vice President for Medical Affairs and Dean of the Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine during Hurricane Andrew, which devastated South Florida in 1992.

Dr. Chet Evans has been board certified with the ABPM since 1993.
