    We'll be on FB Live in 2 days, answering any questions about podiatry. Dr. Harkless recently announced his retirement, so you'll get a lifetime of perspective behind this forecast into the future of podiatry.

    Will there be a way to read the transcript or watch the video afterward, for those of us that are working at that time?

    That was very insightful Dr Rogers, thanks for putting this together. I was wondering if you could elaborate on the idea of "hospital podiatrist"? The closest to this would be podiatrists that primary admit and manage patients with diabetic foot infection which some are doing. Do you see this becoming more mainstream?

    I thought it was very insightful, Dr. Harkless echoed a lot of things he said to us at the beginning of our interview day. He definitely had me fired up and feeling passionate about the field. Even if you don't plan to attend Western I think interviewing there is worth just getting to speak with Dr. Harkless.
