The Texas Podiatric Medical Foundation held their annual residency program fundraiser April 10-12 at the Mayan Ranch in Bandera, Tx. This meeting was started over 30 years ago by Dr. Louis Bogy. The Foundation sponsors residents to attend and they compete by presenting cases and audience asks questions and votes. This year 40 doctors attended and Dr. Larry Harkless was guest speaker. Thank you to BAKO, Dr. Comfort, Stryker & Tetra for their annual sponsorship. This year the winners were a 4-way tie because the cases were all well presented and interesting. Congratulations to the 2015 winners:

  • Dr. Doug Hansen - Kingwood-Houston, TX (Director: Dr. Jorge Matuk/ Dr. Sam Mendicino)
  • Dr. Ashley Diamond - UTHSC-San Antonio, TX (Director: Dr. Michael Palladino)
  • Dr. Britton Plemmons - Baylor/Scott & White-Temple, TX (Director: Dr. Doug Murdoch)
  • Dr. Brandon Lampe & Dr. Binoy Sheth - Hunt Regional-Greenville, TX (Director: Dr. Steve Brancheau)
