There’s no doubt that the last few weeks have changed how we’ll all go about our daily lives in 2020. And for our Australian diabetes foot community – those living with diabetes-related foot disease and our healthcare professionals and researchers working to support them – questions and new information is released each week as we adapt to this global and local uncertainty.

Here at DFA, we’ll be updating our news page with important links and information to try and help keep healthcare professionals informed with latest news, information and advice on the COVID-19 situation that relates to the Australian diabetes foot community.
