EWMA is proud to announce that the current EWMA President, MD, PHD Jan Apelqvist, was presented with the “2012 Edward James Olmos Award for advocacy in amputation prevention” at the Diabetic Foot Global conference in Los Angeles 15-17 March 2012.

Motivating the choice of Jan Apelqvist as this years winner the conference co-chairs Dr. David G. Armstrong and George Andros said that

Dr. Phd Jan Apelqvist Senior Consultant, Department of Endocrinology, Skåne University Hospital, Malmö, Sweden is one of the world's most distinguished experts on the diabetic foot, diabetes-related complications and wound management, a noted researcher, a skilled clinician, a prolific author and a respected educator.”

In his speech of thanks Dr. Jan Apelqvist stressed the role of the whole team from the Diabetic foot unit at the Endocrinological department in Lund and Malmø, Sweden. He also expressed his understanding of the value of the award as being not primarily the honoring of various experts – but rather the fact that the diabetic foot care gains attention through this award.
