Armstrong at the NPR/Arizona Public Media Bureau
Podiatry and limb salvage were front and center yesterday during the annual spring fundraising drive at National Public Radio’s Arizona Public Media Bureau. David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance, hosted an hour of programming with both NPR and classical radio. “I think it is wonderful when we can play hookie from clinic for an hour and support media that supports us”, noted Armstrong. “It also affords us to get the word out in depth– beyond the soundbites– about the importance of foot care and amputation prevention.” This is Armstrong’s second tour at NPR, following a very successful drive in October, 2009.
