Armstrong Keynotes Inaugural Sydney Diabetic Foot Symposium

Sydney’s Liverpool Hospital, Celebrating its bicentennial year, was the center for a standing-room only symposium featuring several of the world’s top clinician-researchers in the field of Diabetes, Infectious Diseases, Foot Surgery, and Amputation Prevention. Matthew Malone, Chief of Liverpool Hospital’s High-Risk Foot Clinic, served as symposium Chair along with co-Director Jess White. David G. Armstrong keynoted the symposium with lectures outlining his team’s works over two decades in wound healing, reconstruction and amputation prevention. He joined Manchester’s Professor Andrew JM Boulton and Oxford’s Benjamin Lipsky who provided keynotes as well during the plenary portion of the meeting. “Lecturing with Professor Lipsky and Boulton, along with other long-time friends like Ed Jude, Mark Tagoe and Frank Bowling, really made this occasion extra special”, noted Armstrong. “To be doing this in front of such an enthusiastic group of Australians and New Zealanders gives me the inspiration to get back to work on Monday and try to make a difference.”

The first-of-its-kind symposium in Sydney is planned to return in two years’ time as a recurring event.
