Every two weeks we feature one of the 21 speakers who presented rapid-fire presentations at the Firefly Summit 2017. Each offering the unique insight from one of the UK and Ireland’s leading practitioners who treat lower leg extremity.
Firefly Orthoses recently partnered with Plymouth University’s School of Health Professions to help promote their BSc (Hons.) in Podiatry.
The Podiatry cohort from the University recently exhibited at the Royal Cornwall Show to promote the University’s undergraduate programme in Podiatry.
To display the scope and breadth of Podiatry as a profession, the University’s stand at the show presented a forensic crime scene. The public who attended the show were invited to solve the crime using forensic podiatric tools and techniques.
The stand proved hugely popular with younger visitors to the show, with many not just solving the crime but giving reasons why! Firefly Orthoses sponsored a prize that was given away at the stand on the day.
Firefly Orthoses is delighted to have played a role in helping Plymouth University promote the podiatry profession at the show.
