    I was saddened to learn that Richard Bogdan, DPM a friend, colleague, educator, author, researcher and sports medicine pioneer passed away in April in Western Australia. After an apparent valiant fight with Mantel Cell Lymphoma, Richard’s illustrious and exciting life as both an international podiatric medical educator with a specialty in orthopedics and sports medicine came to an end. I first met Richard while we were students at CCPM and believe he completed his training at the Graduate Hospital in Philadelphia. Richard practiced for a short while in Concord California before deciding to dedicate his career to education. He taught Biomechanics at CCPM until 1991 and then at OCPM from 1991-93. In 1994 he became the residency director at North Hollywood Medical Center after moving back to the west coast. During this time Richard authored some landmark papers and authored a chapter in the Textbook of Hallux Valgus and Forefoot Surgery. In 1997 Richard made a major life change and moved to Australia where he continued his efforts of teaching. Eventually he went to work for the Australian governments Health Service at the Sir Charles Gaidner Hospital Podiatry Service in Western Australia. Richard thrived in Australia, marrying his wife Shelly, and continuing his teaching at Curtin University and becoming a senior lecturer on post doctoral podiatric biomechanics. Richard’s last research and paper was published in 2011. Post Humus Awards will bear witness to Richard’s contribution include SCGH Podiatry Department - Dr Richard Bogdan D.P.M. Clinic and the 2012 Inaugural Presidents AAPSM award for significant contribution to Australasian Podiatric Sports Medicine.
