As part of the Sports Medicine Club, members of the third-year class of the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine (TUSPM) participated over the two-day event gathering screening data for the Healthy Athletes Program. 133 Special Olympians were screened over two days for foot size, morphology, skin and nail disorders, and gait.

Each athlete was given a pair of heat-molded insoles, made possible through a generous donation  by Apex Corporation. The event was organized by Mr. Jim Dodds, certified pedorthist and orthotist of Hanger Corporation, and Howard Palamarchuk, DPM, Associate Professor, Department of Biomechanics, Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine. The students came away with both an educational and rewarding experience.

Dr. Howard Palamarchuk has been a board certified diplomate with the ABPM since 1990.
