Diabetic Foot Care Front and Center on PBS

Diabetes and the amputation epidemic were front and center yesterday during PBS’s annual pledge drive. To match a program on “Taking Control of Diabetes” led by Dr. Neal Bernard, KUAT, the Arizona PBS affiliate, invited David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) at the University of Arizona, to host the evening’s event. “It was a privilege to participate in this program that supports PBS, which is a jewel to our country in general and our community specifically.” noted Armstrong, “Improving health is so much more than soundbites and Public Television has the remit to go deeper into the issues than other venues. That can only improve care and in our area of interest, keep a few more legs on a few more bodies.” The two hour program was held yesterday at KUAT/PBS studios on the campus of the University of Arizona.
