Four podiatrists, including ABPM Diplomate Dr. Saylee Tulpule, participated in Project Homeless Connect. The event served as a one-day resource fair for participants to access legal services, employment services, podiatry, medical and dental checkups, housing services and more – services that might normally take weeks or months to obtain. This was the first Project Homeless Connect event in the District of Columbia, organized by United Way NCA and held at Central Union Mission in Washington, DC.

The doctors (Howard Osterman, DPM, Saylee Tulpule, DPM, Jennifer Gerres, DPM, and Vinay Matai, DPM) and staff had a wonderful day giving back to the community. Sheila Somashekhar, the event coordinator, gave a special thank you to the FASMA team for their professionalism and quality of service. She said, “In speaking with participants and reviewing the participant evaluation forms, podiatry was among the most popular and well-received services, and I believe your services and medical expertise may have saved some lives.”

Dr. Tulpule has been a board certified diplomate since 2013.
