The Next Global Pandemic
Our very own Katia Langton spoke at the American Orthotics and Prosthetic Association‘s National Assembly conference in San Antonio Texas.
Her talk was on “The Next Global Pandemic” and how diabetes, ulcers and amputations are poised to overwhelm nations and cripple health care budgets. This disease is skyrocketing globally. A critical paradigm shift in treating the diabetic foot is necessary to prepare for the increasing incidences and severity of the disease and its complications.
This is the same talk Katia gave back in July at the American Podiatric Medical Association.
