Henderson, NV – November 12, 2019 -- The Pedorthic Footcare Association (PFA), the only not-for-profit professional association which represents the interests of pedorthic professionals and supports the Pedorthic profession at large, celebrated its 60th Anniversary at its Annual Symposium and Exhibition at the M Hotel last week. With over 300 attendees and vendor partners in attendance, the PFA stated that this was its largest educational and networking event for the Footcare industry.

The PFA’s Symposium and Exhibition is a unique and outstanding educational experience, not only because of the strong quality of programming and speakers, but also because of the intimate, collegial atmosphere that the organization wishes to promote. The Symposium offers opportunities to meet new members, renew old friendships, and connect with some of the pioneers in pedorthics, as well as speak with some of the most prominent names in the various allied healthcare professions. State of the art products and services are also featured on the Exhibit Floor.

“The 2019 Symposium and Exhibition was a great success! With over 300 attendees and vendors in attendance, it was a fantastic learning and networking opportunity!” said Matthew Almeida, President of the PFA. “We are knee deep in planning our 61st Annual Symposium next year in Tampa Bay, and are excited to continue to grow the Pedorthics profession for our members and provide them with what they need to be successful professionals.”

“I want to say thank you to the PFA for helping us get my manager to the symposium, she was able to glean quite a bit.”, says Jeff Rice, PFA Member. “Thanks for all you do to keep the PFA going and I wonder if you all get the thanks you deserve. I am refreshed again from the event with a renewed vision of why I got into this field.”

Also present at the Symposium were “PFA Legends and the Fathers of Pedorthics”: Robert Schwartz, President, CEO and C.Ped., of Eneslow Pedorthic Enterprises and Verne Bintz, Founder and CEO of Verne Bintz Co. PFA will be hosting its 61st Annual Symposium and Exhibition in Tampa, Florida, November 12-14th. More information can be found at
