Leadership afoot

Congratulations to podiatrist Dr. Paul Liswood, DPM, on his election as the 76th president of the New York State Podiatric Medical Assocation. He succeeds Dr. Patricia Nicholas, NYSPMA’s first Caribbean-born female president, and was installed during the 122nd Annual House of Delegates on June 2 at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, N.Y.

The fabulous foot doc brings 25 years of podiatric and leadership expertise to the agency and will continue to advocate for the value of podiatric services. He currently practices at Comprehensive Podiatry Services, a division of ProHEALTH Care associates.

Dr. Liswood comes from a long line of New York-based podiatrists. In 1931, Liswood’s grandfather established a podiatry practice in the Bronx and his dad Fred Liswood, DPM, is one of the pioneers of office-based surgery.

“I am honored to lead the NYSPMA during this exciting time in the organization’s history,” he said during his opening remarks. “During my term, we will continue the focus of raising the profile of podiatry. We will also develop and implement demonstration projects to further advance the findings from the recent NYSPMA population health study, which demonstrates how podiatrists improve outcomes and reduce costs in treating patients in the areas of diabetes, obesity, opioids, and substance abuse, and fall prevention.”

Other honors include the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Meritorious Service Award, presented in 2016.

Dr. Paul Liswood, DPM [7212 Fourth Ave. at 72nd Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 745–0256].
