Physicians, podiatrists, nurses, podiatric assistants and educators gather at the Rambam Healthcare Campus.

Forty podiatrists, nurses, podiatric assistants and educators from the United States and Canada met for eleven days with Israeli physicians and administrators to discuss a wide range of medical topics. The seminar, organized by the American Physicians and Friends for Medicine in Israel (APF) and sponsored by Western University College of Podiatric Medicine, was supported by grants from BAKO and PICA.

The scientific program was developed by Dr. Marlene Reid and Dr. Lawrence Harkless, and included topics on biomechanics, plastic surgery, tumor management, medical preparedness and patient communication. The group visited the four major medical centers of Israel including the Rambam Healthcare Campus.

Lawrence Harkless, DPM has been an ABPM Diplomate since 1994.
