Conrgrats!

Was the position always filled by a DPM or is this something monumental?
Thanks for all the well wishes from everyone. I'm looking forward to advancing the profession and the cause (amputation prevention) through the ADA.

The position has been held by various specialties, podiatrists, diabetologists, and vascular surgeons.

I'm following David Armstrong, DPM, PhD.

Never trust a guy who usually wears a bow tie. Shaved heads also scare me ;)
