As this is one of Andy’s special interests, she serves on the Western Cape committee of the Diabetic Foot Working Group (DFWG).  This voluntary association serves as the overall representative body to promote awareness and optimal management of diabetics with foot problems. Its objectives include the prevention of amputation, promoting academic standards and the establishment of relationships amongst role players.
