Knock your socks off!

November 6, 2010 —

November is diabetes awareness month, and in honor of that, the American Podiatric Medical Association is sponsoring a video contest. The goal is to raise awareness about proper foot care for those who have or are at risk for diabetes. It is important to treat any complications from the disease early to avoid serious complications.

Learn more about diabetic foot care.

Videos are entered for a chance to win a 16GB iPad!

Learn more about the contest rules and requirements. Deadline for video submissions is Nov 14. Good luck!

If you or someone you know has diabetes and would like to schedule an appointment with a podiatrist, head to DMU’s Foot & Ankle Institute.


Andrea Cooley gets paid to post on Facebook and Twitter (among other things) to promote Des Moines University to prospective students. She is a Midwest girl at heart, but loves to travel around the country visiting friends and family. If Des Moines had mountains or an ocean she’d never leave. Before joining the DMU marketing team, she was an editor for Country Home magazine. She’s still a little obsessed with magazines, so if you want to talk about decorating, remodeling or gardening projects she’s your go-to girl.

    Well good post, American Podiatric Medical Association was done a great job. Day by day diabetes patients are increasing at high rate so if we are not aware about it it’ll be very harmful to us.
