History of FAPA

In 1957, Dr. Jules Shangold with the assistance of Drs. Crystal, Geller, Greenberg,

Isenberg, Kanegis, and Lane believed podiatric medicine was a unique health profession and

formed FAPA as a common assistance organization for Podiatrists. Fraternalism in its purest!

Advice and assistance was given to the members in the areas of practice management,

scientific podiatry, assistance in buying and selling practices, health insurance, or any other

item of interest to podiatric practice.

The position of the organization was to advise members to purchase a high deductible,

traditional indemnity health insurance program. Additionally advice was given to secure an

insurance program which would cover any deductible and /or co-insurance portion of the high

deductible policy.

FAPA Fraternal is incorporated in the state of New York.
