UTHSCSA fellowship alumnus and former faculty member David G. Armstrong, DPM, MD, PhD received the inaugural Lawrence B. Harkless Leadership Award from UT at the Great Debates & Updates Diabetic Foot Conference. “Today we honor two great leaders in the diabetic foot,” said co-chair Dr. Lee C. Rogers, “Lawrence B. Harkless, this award’s namesake, was responsible for a national movement of podiatry in caring for the diabetic foot. He inspired countless residents, students, and peers. Dr. Armstrong, who was mentored by Dr. Harkless, now leads a global movement. One that is making an impact on, literally, all continents. The wake created by these two leaders is long and wide.”
Armstrong is a Professor of Surgery at the Keck USC School of Medicine and the President of the American Limb Preservation Society. He has authored more than 500 peer-reviewed papers and is considered the global leader in the diabetic foot.
