About the Conference
The Desert Foot Annual Multi-Disciplinary Limb Salvage and Wound Care Conference will be run virtually this year, conveniently and inexpensively delivered directly to you at your home or office. A total of 32 CME credits are offered, between the 4 day live conference on back-to-back weekends Sat-Sun, December 5-6 and 11-13, and the 2 day pre-conference programs on Fri, December 4 and 11. Serving this year as Conference Co-Chairmen are Drs Charles Andersen, Lee Rogers and Thomas Serena. This meeting provides a great opportunity for you to meet, greet, and share your scientific leadership with a large part of the wound care and surgery community, in the private and federal sectors. The conference brings together six groups involved with limb salvage preservation of the lower extremity, from healthcare clinicians in the private sector, the Veterans Administration, VA Podiatric Residency Directors, Arizona Podiatric Medical Association, Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC), and the Department of Defense. It’s one single conference designed to best meet wound care specialists CME and educational needs. This important conference’s education is taught by our nation’s top key opinion leaders focused on evidence-based and best practices to improve limb salvage techniques, advanced wound care skills, and treatment of surgical and medical disorders of the lower limb. This year, the event will be virtually live streamed to you using an innovative conference platform that allows personal interaction between attendees, faculty and exhibitors just as if you were all gathered together in the same city. It will be a truly amazing virtual experience for one and all.
