Geisinger Clinic hosted its twelfth Parenti Limb Salvage symposium in Danville, Pennsylvania. David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Southwestern Academic Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) at the Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California, became the first person to deliver the keynote lecture a second time. The program also included Georgetown professors John Steinberg and Chris Attinger, who joined remotely. It included physicians, surgeons, nurses, executives, and public officials from across the region, including the Dean of the Geisinger Commonwealth College of Medicine, Julie Byerley. The program was chaired and organized by Kathya Zinszer, DPM, MPH. The program is underwritten by a grant from noted economists, Drs. Arturo and Nina Porzecanski.
