DR. FULLWOOD JOINS 4TH ANNUAL PODIATRY INITIATIVE OF NIGERIA

Dr. Fullwood of Sebasticook Valley Health (SVH) was invited to lecture with a team of medical professionals from the United States. The team consisted of Podiatrists, an Emergency Room physician and Certified Nurse Anesthetist who participated as instructors in the 4th Annual Podiatry Initiative of Nigeria in Lagos, Nigeria. This five day workshop and training program was a collaboration of the World Diabetes Foundation, The Podiatry Institute, and Rainbow Specialist Medical Center. The purpose was to train Nigerian medical professionals on diabetic foot care and amputation prevention. During this conference, strides were made to establish Podiatric Medicine/Surgery as it is a much needed medical specialty in Nigeria in light of the alarming rates of complications associated with diabetic foot ulcers. Dr. Fullwood and his team will be traveling back to Nigeria in 2018 to meet with political leaders and University presidents to further this cause in Nigeria.
