75 Years ACFAS Leaders, Learners, Life Changers
American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons’ Story Continues 75 Years Later
75 Years ACFAS Leaders, Learners, Life Changers – In 1942, five men, average age 31, founded ACFS (now ACFAS).
- To build a profession worthy of respect and recognition.
- To create an organization that would accomplish more than they could individually.
They succeeded. There’s no question that surgery is what transformed chiropody to podiatry to foot and ankle surgery.
This amazing story will be told throughout our 75th anniversary year in all ACFAS publications, including The Evolution of a Profession, a special history book that will debut next month. We hope you’ll read this story and appreciate how your predecessors changed American medical history!
