Welcome to DFA 2019!
We’re once again bringing some of the globe’s most renowned researchers and clinicians in the field of diabetes and diabetic foot disease to sunny Queensland. Just meters from the Brisbane river, with the cityscape as the backdrop, DFA 2019 will deliver future-focused content with an emphasis on the practical. And it gets even bigger! With the 8th International Symposium on Diabetic Foot held in the Netherlands in May 2019, (also the world’s largest meeting devoted to diabetic foot disease), we’re then bringing the “Olympics of Diabetic Foot Disease Downunder” to DFA 2019 in September. Our program features not one but four international key speakers who have played key roles in the development of the just released 2019 International (IWGDF) guidelines.
DFA 2019 is focused on delivering the latest in global research that’s also tailored to every day Australian practice. Providing the perfect opportunity to engage with dedicated health professionals and researchers keen to set the new Australian standard in diabetic foot disease research, care and management. What remains abundantly clear though, is the crucial role our exceptional conference partners play, and how in 2019, our focus is to elevate the exhibition experience even higher. Our partnership and exhibition opportunities are now sold out but please feel free to email us to chat about our upcoming 2020/2021 projects and educational events.
