SHUZZ Foundation in the News

By Dr. Jason Gold, DPM, FACFAS | Dr. Jodi Schoenhaus DPM, RPhs, FACFAS

It’s that time of year when the general public gives a little more generously in helping those in need of food, warm shelter, or Christmas toys. But when it comes to Medical Mission work, it doesn’t normally follow a certain “time of year” for the medical community to physically travel to other countries and offer much needed medical treatment and education. Our PPMA Members and Residents are no different in giving of their time and expertise to those in dire need throughout the year, or supporting podiatric organizations that give back to the community in a big way.

These podiatric physicians/surgeons bring hope and healing to indigenous peoples like no other profession can in such countries as South America, Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. Their giving extends beyond a certain time of year, with most returning to follow up or because they get a lot of gratification in bringing much needed healing/treatment.

Most children in the states have multiple pairs of shoes to wear for different activities—sports, walking, recreation, school, and formal occasions. This is not the case in all parts of the U.S., but it is definitely lacking in third-world countries. “Most children across the world have one pair of shoes for school and play,” says Jodi Schoenhaus, DPM, Boca Raton/Boynton Beach, FL, Medical Director, SHUZZ Foundation. Dr. Schoenhaus started the organization because she knows the confidence a pair of brand-new shoes can bring to a child.
