Entries are now invited for the Cosyfeet Podiatry Award 2019. This £1000 award is open to any podiatrist or podiatry student who is planning voluntary work, a work placement or research, either in the UK or abroad.
The winner’s application should demonstrate that their selected project will develop their professional knowledge and skills while being of benefit to others. The £1000 award is designed to assist with the costs associated with the chosen project.
Former winners have undertaken a wide range of initiatives including those relating to the treatment of talipes equinovarus in children, the diabetic foot and the podiatric needs of dementia sufferers. Others have travelled to Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia or South America to help with conditions resulting from diseases such as leprosy and filariasis.
Margaryta Bazelchuk, a Level 3 BSc Podiatry student at Glasgow Caledonian, is the proud winner of the Cosyfeet Podiatry Award 2018. She is using her £1000 award to fund a footwear assessment project with Glasgow’s homeless population.
“This project will provide a much-needed footwear assessment for people who often own footwear which is not conducive to optimum foot health and wellbeing,” says Cosyfeet Managing Director Andrew Peirce. “It also provides a priceless opportunity for students to gain experience with a patient group that they would not normally encounter.”
If you would like to apply for the Cosyfeet Podiatry Award 2019, visit www.cosyfeet.com/award for further information and to enter online before the closing date of April 26th, 2019.
The winner will be requested to submit a report and photographs of their experience, and to be included in Cosyfeet publicity relating to the award.
