SALSA’s Armstrong is First Podiatric Surgeon to Deliver Plenary at SingHealth Congress

David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) at the University of Arizona became the first podiatric surgeon to be featured in the renowned SingHealth-Duke-National University Singapore Medical Congress held this week in Singapore. With more than 2500 delegates from across Asia, Europe and the Americas, Armstrong delivered four lectures and workshops ranging from reconstructive surgical techniques in diabetic extremities to the merger of consumer electronics with medical devices. “The group here at SingHealth was wonderful– from the opening remarks from President Tony Tan to the leadership at Duke and National University Singapore. To see an entire nation focusing on delivering better healthcare is heartening and inspiring.”
