Save the Date: New Region Learning Programs

Mid-Atlantic Region
September 24-25, 2021
Charlotte, NC

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 Mid-Atlantic Region New Officer Elected

Dear ACFAS Mid-Atlantic Region Members:

As a result of the recent Mid-Atlantic Region Call for Volunteers process and e-balloted election, the new Secretary/Treasurer of the Region is:

Crystal-Dawn Gunsch, DPM, AACFAS

Congratulations to Dr. Gunsch. Her term will commence on March 1, in conjunction with the next meeting of the College's Region Presidents Council (RPC).

Thanks to both candidates and to those members that took the time to vote. Please watch your email for information about the next membership meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Region, to be held at the ACFAS Annual Scientific Conference in Las Vegas in May.

Region Goals for Second Half of 2021

  •  ACFAS Region Presidents Council (RPC) Zoom meeting on October 16.
  •  ACFAS Mid-Atlantic Region involvement in planning for ACFAS Regional Learning Series.


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 careers as foot and ankle surgeons.

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.
