Nearly 500 wounds care experts from the VA, IHS, DOD and the private sector, as well as hundreds of dedicated men and women from the wound care industry, met in the Arizona desert once again to advance the strategies, techniques and technology of modern podiatric wound care. The Indian Health Service expanded their annual participation with a full day of education for their members. The 6th Annual Paul Brand Award for excellence in wound care outside the U.S. was received this year by the world-renowned thought leader and author on the diabetic foot, Luca Dalla Paola, MD of Maria Cecelia Hospital in Cotignola, Italy.
