Australian Podiatry Education and Research Foundation

The Australian Podiatry Education and Research Foundation (APERF) was established in 1990 to advance research into the causes, prevention and treatment of foot problems. With the help of generous donations from the podiatry community – podiatrists, medical suppliers and patients – APERF has supported more than 70 research projects in the past 25 years. These donations directly provide grants to support researchers as they embark upon many and varied academic studies to improve the impact of podiatric treatments. Find out more here

You can donate to APERF during the registration process.
