TUSPM Volunteers as Healthy Athletes at Pennsylvania Special Olympics

Students from the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine (TUSPM) served as part of the Healthy Athletes initiative at the recent Pennsylvania Fall Festival sports games. Known as Fit Feet, students under the direction of Howard J Palamarchuk, DPM, podiatric clinical director for the competition  screened over 120 athletes during the two days of competition.

Jim Dodds, CPED  of the  Hanger Corporation lent his expertise in modifying shoe insoles for the athletes provided through the generosity of New Balance. Now in its 11th year of service, TUSPM is proud to be part of the Special Olympics movement.

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