David G. Armstrong Professor of Surgery and Director of the Limb Preservation Program at the Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California, served as a keynote as well as moderator at a symposium focused on addressing and eliminating disparities in the US South and beyond. The symposium, held in Biloxi, was sponsored by the Mississippi Podiatric Medical Association. Armstrong, during his keynote, brought in his friend and colleague Foluso Fakorede, MD, of Cleveland Mississippi, who has spearheaded the Amputation Reduction and Compassion (ARC) Act in the US Congress, designed to increase testing for peripheral artery disease and reduce health disparities.
