Braggin’ on an alum

February 24, 2009 —

Dr. Lee’96 CPMS grad Michael S. Lee, D.P.M., FACFAS, was recently named president-elect of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS). (ACFAS has 6,000+ members. It’s a big deal!)

“ACFAS is a forum and network of the best and the brightest minds in the field of podiatric surgery, and I am honored to be granted the opportunity to serve my profession in this way,” said Dr. Lee. 

Dr. Lee is a current clinical associate professor at Des Moines University (DMU) and supervises students on rotations. He practices with Capital Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Des Moines with a focus on the diagnosis and treatment of all musculoskeletal foot and ankle conditions including reconstruction, trauma and sports injuries. He is team podiatric physician for the Iowa Chops AHL hockey team, Iowa Barnstormers AFL2 football team and area universities and colleges. He is certified in foot surgery and reconstructive rearfoot/ankle surgery by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery.

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
