On the occasion of this year’s World Diabetes Day, D-Foot International will organise the Global Diabetic Foot Awareness Week from 8 to 14 November.
Various initiatives will raise awareness of the importance of the appropriate management of diabetic foot problems and promote the work of diabetic foot specialists around the world.
Activities during the Global Diabetic Foot Awareness Week will include:
Regional webinar programme
Under the leadership of the D-Foot Regional Chairs, each of the 7 Regions will invite anyone taking an interest in the topic of the diabetic foot to attend one of more webinars to be broadcast on various days during the Awareness Week. Registration and attendance are free.
On 14 November, two additional, global webinars will be offered. Professor Michael Edmonds will speak on ”Ending avoidable lower-limb amputations: the role of the multidisciplinary diabetic foot clinic” and Dr Lee C Rogers on ”Diabetes and COVID feet”.
All regional and global webinar presentations can be viewed live on the day and will remain available for later viewing afterwards.
Details of all programmes are available on the D-Foot website.
