The College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery has experienced success over the summer in the area of scholarship/research. Kathy Frush, D.P.M. ’05, and Lori Steiner, D.P.M. ’10, were published in the July/August edition of the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association (JAPMA). Shevonne Wells, D.P.M. ’11, and Dr. R. Tim Yoho were published in the September/October issue of JAPMA. JAPMA is one of only a few peer-review podiatric medical journals.

Yoho R, Wells S: Navicular stress reactions in runners: a review of evaluation and management of a competitive athlete.  JAPMA 101 (5): 44, 2011.

In addition, Dr. Yoho, Dr. Vassilios Vardaxis, Geoffrey Kraemer, D.P.M. ’13, and Gavin Ripp, D.P.M. ’11, received the third place award in the category of case studies/small research projects at the 2011 APMA National Scientific Meeting held in Boston, July 28-31.
