The event was run on a virtual streaming conference platform that allowed extensive interaction between Attendees and Exhibitors. The event content focused on the care of the at-risk diabetic foot, both the preventative care and the best practices for critical limb ischemia, diabetic neuropathy, and limb preservation. Thank you to our Conference Co-Chairmen Charles Andersen, MD, Lee Rogers, DPM and Thomas Serena, MD who designed a comprehensive curriculum of lectures and ran a series of 14 Live Ask the Experts – Q&A Sessions utilizing a large and renowned Faculty. AAWC provided 2 Sunday sessions on wound care. Thank you to our Grand Sponsor 3M. PRESENT Co-Founder and CEO Alan Sherman, DPM said, “It’s gratifying to see that the pivot we made to live virtual conferences has been so generally accepted by the Desert Foot audience. They tell us that although they look forward to attending conferences in-person again, they like the lower cost and convenience of earning their CME and maintaining their knowledge and skills from their homes and offices.”
