MPMA Supports the American Diabetes Association

MPMA announces their support of the American Diabetes Association with a yearlong sponsorship.

One of the main goals of the MPMA is to educate the public (especially those with diabetes) on foot care to prevent unnecessary complications.  Working alongside the ADA, MPMA members will come in direct contact with those that truly benefit from their advice and expertise.
