About the Conference

The Desert Foot Conference is a CME educational program designed for all VA, DOD, IHS and PHS healthcare professionals, attracting all federal service programs as well as non-VA podiatrists, physicians and nurses. The program enables participants to improve limb salvage techniques, improve foot health and to specifically diagnose and treat diabetes related disorders of the lower limb. The attendees receive state-of-the-art training and updates on advanced diabetic wound care, surgical procedures, and the frequency, determinants, distribution as well as the diagnosis and treatment of lower extremity diabetic disease. The goal of the conference is to bring podiatrists and other members of the federal service wound care and surgery healthcare community from across the country to a single conference designed especially to best meet their educational needs.
