TUCSON, AZ. David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance at the University of Arizona College of Medicine was given the American Diabetes Association’s “Cure” award at a black tie gala held this weekend for his group’s work in Amputation Prevention. “This is a honor that I share with our SALSA team, our Department and with our University”, noted Dr. Armstrong, a past board member of the American Diabetes Association. “We have found that putting people together really makes a difference. The secret sauce that makes up SALSA is teamwork.” Armstrong, a podiatrist and researcher, has produced more than 270 peer reviewed manuscripts and helped to develop the key classifications and guidelines that serve to direct diabetic foot care around the world. His SALSA unit, co-directed by renowned vascular surgeon Dr. Joseph Mills, has served as a model for care regionally, nationally,and internationally.
