Four faculty members from the College of Podiatric Medicine at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, Calif. were honored as “”America’s Most Influential Podiatrists”” by Podiatry Management magazine.

The two-part series was published in January and March 2012. On the list were Robert A. Christman, DPM, EdM, professor of Podiatric Medicine, Surgery & Biomechanics; Lawrence B. Harkless, DPM, Founding Dean; Lester J. Jones, DPM, MS Ed, Executive Associate Dean, Academic Affairs; and Kathy Satterfield, DPM, FACFAOM, MAPWCA, Director, Pre-Clinical Curriculum.

“”This recognition is a testament to the outstanding leadership and commitment to teaching, research and service that’s available at Western University of Health Sciences College of Podiatric Medicine to inform and inspire students,”” Harkless said.

The process for determining the “”who’s who of podiatry”” is done every five years, according to the magazine. The magazine’s editors and readers of Podiatry Management’s Internet newsletter also nominated additional podiatrists.

Podiatry Management (PM) is a national practice management and business magazine, reaching more than 16,000 podiatrists. PM publishes articles and features of interest to the podiatric community.
