Updates in Diabetes and Wounds: Practical Pearls
The Reviews are In!
On April 2nd, ACPM held another online mini-conference - 
Updates in Diabetes & Wounds:
Practical Pearls.

This 6-CECH event featured some of the world's leading educators of the diabetic foot and there were 170 DPMs in attendance.

Thank you, Dr. Rosemay Michel (Education Committee Chair) and the ACPM Education Committee for your hard work and dedication to ensuring a successful online education event.

Some attendee feedback:
Really great seminar. I am non-surgical and I was pleased with the balance of the presentations. The surgical segments contained info that I can use in directing my patients and helping to manage expectations in treatment choices. I liked the reminder that not every surgery has to be a major surgery.
Excellent program; superb speakers with experience and evidence-based.
Excellent sessions, I am extremely happy that I took the time to register for this meeting.
