2015 IPC Mission Statement

Since the establishment of the International Podiatry Club, it has been the club’s mission to travel to underserved regions and provide podiatric focused medical care to those in need. This year, the International Podiatry Club is maintaining this mission and will be traveling to Kingston, Jamaica on June 17, 2015.

Our mission this year consists of working with “Missionaries of the Poor” where we will be actively seeing and treating patients for four days on the island of Jamaica. Five third year students, Brittany Mayer (IPC Co-President), Josana Joseph (IPC Co-President), Caitlin Miner (IPC Secretary), Loretta Cacace (IPC Class of 2016 Student Representative) and Crystal Gunsch (IPC Class of 2016 Student Representative), along with Dr. Barlizo (IPC Faculty Advisor and Podiatric Surgeon) and Dr. Loi (Chief Resident) will be making the much anticipated trip this year. The mission group is anxious to expand their clinical experience in Jamaica, while giving back to those who do not have regular access to podiatric or medical care.

The International Podiatry Club has been hosting events throughout the past year in efforts to fundraise for the upcoming mission. Over the year our efforts include hosting several bake sales, a raffle for tickets to the much anticipated “Football”, the Mets Baseball Game IPC fundraiser and a valentine’s day Candy gram. We are actively planning our upcoming fundraiser where we will be hosting the 1st Annual “NYCPM” Cook-Off Competition to be held on May 21st, 2015 at NYCPM.

While the International Podiatry Club has been successful in fundraising throughout the year, this mission trip still involves a lot of out of pocket expenses, as the flights to Jamaica and cost to stay total around $800 per person.

A medical mission trip is an extremely rewarding opportunity for all of those involved and we truly appreciate any support or donations you may be able to provide. Your contributions and dedication to the International Podiatry Club are appreciated and will play a role in the success of our trip.

The faculty and staff at NYCPM have been very helpful and shown their supportive in the past, and this year was no exception. We appreciated everyone's contributions and would like to thank the following donors and supporters:
