7th International Symposium on the Diabetic Foot. The Hague, The Netherlands, 20 - 23 May 2015

Dear colleague,
You are cordially invited to participate in the 7th International Symposium on the Diabetic Foot. In this unique multidisciplinary symposium the latest scientific developments will be presented; both findings from basic research and clinical insights important to everybody’s daily practice will be discussed.
A variety of well-known specialists will present state of the art lectures on a broad selection of topics regarding prevention, diagnosis and treatment of lower extremity problems in diabetes. Interactive workshops will provide you with useful information for daily clinical practice.
This meeting has become the standard international (scientific) meeting on this topic. Due to the success of our earlier meetings in Noordwijkerhout, a new and larger venue was selected: the World Forum Convention Center in The Hague, the Netherlands. The Hague is a beautiful city behind the dunes, full of history, royalty and museums, and is only 45 minutes away from Amsterdam airport by public transport.
We look forward to welcoming you in May 2015!
On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
Nicolaas C. Schaper, chairman
