Save the Date: New Region Learning Programs

Southeast Region
May 2022
Orlando, FL

Are you looking forward to getting back to in-person meetings and educational offerings? It's almost time to get back to normal! 

The College is launching a new pilot educational Region Learning Program. These two-day courses will combine case presentations, lightning lectures and hands-on labs, enabling attendees to gain insight into the depth and breadth of your current foot and ankle knowledge. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of contributing factors associated with foot and ankle surgery complications and will be able to apply new skills to help you maximize function and restore structure.

The College has scheduled courses in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest Region for Fall 2021, and courses will be held in the Big West, Tri-State and Southeast Regions in Spring 2022. 

Please watch your email for more information to come!

ACFAS Southeast Region New Officer Elected

Dear ACFAS Southeast Region Members:

With the recent Southeast Region Call for Volunteers process, one ACFAS member submitted his interest, and is now the new ACFAS Southeast Region Secretary/Treasurer:

Teddy Musselman, DPM, FACFAS

Congratulations to Dr. Musselman. 

Region Goals for Second Half of 2021

  •  ACFAS Region Presidents Council (RPC) Zoom meeting on October 16.
  • ACFAS Southeast Region funding for Barry students educational activities.
  • ACFAS Southeast Region planning for upcoming ACFAS Regional Learning Series program.


A portion of ACFAS member dues is allocated for Region activities. Regions use these funds to further the goals of ACFAS at the state and local level: to promote the superior care of foot and ankle surgical patients through education, research and promotion of the highest professional standards. Regions also work on outreach to students and residents, helping to give them a successful start in their career as a foot and ankle surgeon.

Regions are affiliate organizations of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. They are granted a charter and license to use the ACFAS name and logo, are mandated by their own articles of incorporation and bylaws, and remain separate entities from the parent organization.

For more information about Region activities, please contact Michelle Kennedy, ACFAS Director of Membership and Post Graduate Affairs.
