We’re excited to share with you that Diabetic Foot Australia is now Diabetes Feet Australia!So…why the new branding? That’s a good question! As DFA has grown, our vision and objectives have remained consistent. But we also recognised the need to evolve our branding to better reflect who we are, and what we represent as an organisation now and into the future. Since joining the Australian Diabetes Society (ADS) as a division in 2018, our goal has also been to align with the ADS branding, whilst retaining DFA’s most recognisable logo icons. And you can learn even more about our new branding at www.diabetesfeetaustralia.org/rebrand/ DFA is still…DFA. But you will notice some changes to our social media, emails, and website as we roll out the new branding. We may have changed our name, but our important purpose to end avoidable amputations within a generation remains the same. #letspreventamputations #endingavoidableamputations Australian Podiatry Association Wounds Australia Australian Diabetes Society Australian Diabetes Educators Association Advanced Practicing Podiatrists - High Risk Foot Group Pedorthic Association of Australia Diabetes Australia Diabetes WA Regional Wounds Victoria APNA - Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association ...
