Ponseti International Association (PIA) has designated June 3 as World Clubfoot Day. The date was chosen to commemorate the birthdate of Dr. Ignacio Ponseti, (1914-2009) the developer of the Ponseti Method to treat clubfoot. Story
The Ponseti International Association will collaborate with Management Sciences for Health on a two-year, nearly $2 million project to bring clubfoot treatment to underserved populations in Nigeria, Pakistan, and Peru.
A $302,400 grant from Ronald McDonald House Charities will train physicians from around the world in the pioneering clubfoot treatment developed by late University of Iowa faculty member Ignacio Ponseti. Story
