The American College of Medical Foot Care & Esthetics (ACMFCE) has been formed to promote universal safety standards for the sterile, effective treatment of routine foot care; for a sterile protective environment for foot care; for safety in foot care work areas; and foot product safety.  With public awareness of the transmissibility of infections from one person to another learned in the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now critical to protect the public and prevent harm.
