Community and University Involvement

Community Involvement

Other than the business aspect of this company, PodoKop has decided to get involved in its community.

In 2012, the podiatry students at UQTR founded the Clinique Podiatrique Communautaire in order to raise money for Accueil Bonneau in Montreal.

PodoKop immediately wanted to support the less fortunate from Accueil Bonneau.

They do this by providing any custom-made orthotics prescribed to the beneficiaries of Accueil Bonneau through this initiative.

University Involvement

Michel Joubert was the first director of the podiatric medicine program at the UQTR from 2004 to 2008. He was also a biomechanic and orthopedic teacher from 2004 to 2008.

Michel Bourque, Patrice Roy Jr and Eric Valcourt, from 2007 to 2010, have taught at the UQTR for the podiatric medicine program. They gave various classes related to the prescription and production of orthotics.

Michel Bourque, Michel Joubert and Patrice Roy Jr have been seeing students for internships since 2007 and still contribute actively to oversee future graduates of podiatric medicine.

PodoKop has always supported the students in podiatric medicine either by sponsering them or offering scholarships.
