At Ruth Ruttan & Assoc., our annual conference is a really big deal!

This  year, we are very excited about our Prevention Convention. We have collaborated with a team of leaders in the field of Diabetes and Footcare to bring a multidisciplinary approach to preventing lower extremity amputations through the prevention and treatment of foot ulcers and complications.

According to Diabetes Canada, about 15% to 25% of patients with diabetes will develop a foot ulcer during their lifetime with one third eventually requiring amputation.

The Prevention Convention is an excellent opportunity for health professionals of all disciplines to take part in the latest evidence-based education seeking an integrative approach towards an effective Diabetes Prevention Foot Complications strategy.

As conference details are confirmed we will be updating our website. Check in with us regularly!

Register early to avoid disappointment!
