Spreading the SALSA: University of Arizona’s SALSA and University of Cardiff’s Transatlantic Healing Collaborative Well Underway

The University of Arizona's Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA), under the direction of Professor of Surgery David G. Armstrong, DPM, PhD, continued its goal of “spreading the SALSA” in its unique collaborative with the renowned Wound Healing Research Unit at the University of Cardiff United Kingdom. The Collaborative, which has contributed to research and education, took on a new arm this week with Armstrong's lecture to Cardiff University's Masters of Science program in Tissue Repair and Wound Healing. “As a graduate of that program, it is an absolute pleasure to work with them in this capacity.” noted Armstrong. “Our Universities' collective Biocommunications units are absolutely world class on both sides of the Atlantic. Telemedicine and telemedical education are now part and parcel of SALSA's mission.” The MSc program, founded and run by Cardiff University's Professor Keith Harding, is the first and only Masters program of its type in the world.
