This past Sunday, July 15, I had the pleasure of participating in a radio interview on WOKV, Jacksonville, FL, the largest, most listened to talk radio station in Northern Florida. Here is the link to the audiostream: http://wokv.media.streamtheworld.com/audio/save_leg_save_101730761.mp3 The show was hosted by Desmond Bell, DPM. Des, a former student “done good”, is the Executive Director of the Save a Leg, Save a Life Foundation http://savealegsavealife.org/ or SALSAL. From its modest beginnings as a way for Des and his wife De Anna, a nurse practitioner and wound specialist, to get local providers in the Jacksonville area up to speed in the area of wound care, SALSAL has grown into a nationwide organization with at least 30 local chapters spread throughout the US. As I mention in the interview, the scope of the organization did not really hit me until I was giving a dinner lecture to the local chapter in Seattle a few months back and over 70 health care providers of all specialties attended. I have seen this organization grow from its first small meeting in Jacksonville, where I don’t think there even were 70 attendees, to a significant national “player” in the area of limb salvage. Congrats to Des and De Anna.
