ACFAS Tri-State Region Supports Student Scholar to the Annual Scientific Conference

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 2020 ACFAS Region Scholar from the Tri-State Region is Alexandra Brown from Temple University.

Region Goals for Second Half of 2020

  • Tri-State Region is hosting a Complications Seminar in Fall pending pandemic updates.
  • Tri-State Region officer plans to participate in the Region Presidents Council virtual meeting.
  • Provide Tri-State Region financial support to the TUSPM Student Club.


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.
