ACFAS Region Scholars are funded by the ACFAS Region Presidents Council, specifically their home Regions, and are usually the president-elect of their local ACFAS Student Club. Their local Regions honor them as future leaders of the profession. The 2019 ACFAS Region Scholars from the Pacific Region are Christopher Zimmer from CSPM; and Jordan Richardson from Western U.

Region Goals for Second Half of 2019

  • Pacific Region support of On the Road with ACFAS - Fixing a Flat:  Comprehensive Approach to Pes Valgus, November 8-9, Redondo Beach, CA
  • Pacific Region support of a Complications course in Seattle, WA
  • Pacific Region support of ACFAS Clubs at CSPM and Western U.
  • Pacific Region preparation to support ACFAS 2020 posters and manuscripts from Residents.

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.
