James Hanna, DPM, Named NYSPMA’s 78th President

The New York State Podiatric Medical Association (NYSPMA) has named James Hanna, DPM, as its 78th president; he was installed July 23 during a Zoom ceremony. Hanna succeeds Daniel B. Keating, DPM.

Hanna has been in practice in the Western New York area for over 25 years and has served on the NYSPMA Board of Trustees since 2013; he has held other leadership positions. Among the topics he will focus on during his presidency are advocating for the expansion of podiatry’s role in preventive care; providing assistance to the membership as the profession navigates the COVID-19 pandemic; and working alongside the NYSPMA Public & Population Health Task Force to continue championing the message that care provided by a podiatrist leads to improved health, especially as it relates to chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, the opioid crisis, and fall prevention.
