David G. Armstrong, DPM, MD, PhD, Professor of Surgery, Co-Founder and Director of the University of Arizona’s Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA), served as keynote speaker in a session of the Canadian Association for Wound Care, held in Toronto this morning. He also held two separate sessions in which he briefed both Canadian Provincial Parliament members as well as an interdisciplinary group of physicians, surgeons and nurses on topics ranging from preventative foot care to health disparities and equity to the merger of consumer electronics with medical devices. “The keynote was wonderful”, noted Dr. Armstrong “but the free-flowing conversation with grassroots organizers and MPP Sattler was really inspiring. I’m going to head back to our clinics full of enthusiasm.”
