Event description

Description

Organised by Peacocks, the Forward Thinking Orthotic Conference (FOrth) brings together health professionals annually to examine and discuss a common presentation or pathology.

For our next conference in January 2018, we are examining the Diabetic foot.

The conference will host presentations from the fields of Diabetology, Orthotics, Podiatry, Surgery, Nursing and Academia to share ideas and better understand how healthcare professionals can best work together in managing and treating the diabetic foot.

The conference will have breaks for coffee and networking and finish with a buffet lunch
