Rethinking podiatry care in Africa

Rethinking Podiatry of Africa: when amputations are not inevitable

Healthcare professionals and business executives joined a spirited discussion last Thursday to tackle an ambitious topic: ‘Rethinking podiatry care in Africa’. Led by a podiatrist, an endocrinologist, and the head of the only academic podiatry department in Africa, the conversation addressed topics such as perceptions of the profession, multidisciplinary care and education. Over a hundred participants joined in the live discussion, which was part of Diabetes Africa’s ‘Active Conversations’ series, examining diabetes care in a changing world.
