Ronald Jensen, DPM of California was installed today as The American Podiatric Medical Association's new president. Jensen stated, "I believe that the success of one podiatrist adds to the success of all podiatrists. We are a dynamic profession in a changing world. It is critical that podiatry maintains the strong presence on Capitol Hill that we have maintained for the past few years."
Jensen also commented on the creation of APMA's new affiliate, the American Society of Podiatric Surgeons (ASPS) saying, "ASPS will guarantee that quality surgical education will be available to every APMA member."
Jensen succeeds Ross Taubman, DPM who reminded the APMA House of Delegates that "challenges bring opportunities." APMA Executive Director Glenn Gastwirth, DPM declared, "It is time for podiatry to stand up and face any discrimination based on our degree."
Ronald Jensen, DPM graduated from the California School of Podiatric Medicine (CSPM) formerly known as California College of Podiatric Medicine (CCPM), in 1984.
