International Podiatry Day (IPD) is the global awareness campaign which aims to spread the word about the importance of foot health. Celebrated every year on the 8th of October, International Podiatry Day wants to become the biggest event focused on foot health around the world and the greatest effort to raise awareness on Podiatry both with the general public, other health professions and government health officials about the impact and the dangers of foot and ankle ailments.
Get involved in 2020
The purpose of IPD is to create awareness and to reach out to the global podiatry community. This is possible by brand awareness of the day and adoption of the campaign among all podiatrists which will expand the reach to colleagues and professional associations representing podiatrists.
By achieving member engagement and by growing the community, we will drive commitment, increase positive conversations, build relationships and grow the awareness around podiatry.
How to get involved?
Starting from 1 June 2020, infographics, articles, videos and posts will be shared weekly through the different social media channels of the International Federation of Podiatrists and specific International Podiatry Day channels.
After the press release has been published on October 1, every day Key Opinion Leaders in Podiatry will send a video message to the world to spread the word on podiatry.
On International Podiatry Day, 8 October 2020, we want to create a big buzz around the podiatric community by having everybody using the IPD frame on Facebook and make a selfie at work alone, with colleagues or with your favourite instrument.
