Welcome Message

Following a successful 4thInternational Diabetic Foot Conference held in November 2013; we will once again host the International Conference of global experts in the field of diabetic foot care during the 5th International Diabetic Foot Conference (IDFC) taking place from 13-14 November, 2014 in Conrad Dubai Hotel, Dubai, UAE.

This year’s conference is a continuation from the previous editions where it will highlight international, regional and local speakers who come with a wealth of knowledge to share through plenary sessions, evidence-based and hands-on workshops with breakout sessions to meet the needs of all attendees.

The IDFC has been identified already in the region as a platform for the medical fraternity to get together and update in the field of Diabetic Foot Prevention and Management. Attendees will have the chance to network with experts from around the world.

There have been many recent advances in wound healing specifically at the level of the individual cells. New technologies and therapeutic modalities are promising and will soon be available in routine clinical practice.

We look forward to share it all with you!
