The Foundation organizes the “Jean-Louis Richard Days” every two years – Jean-Louis Richard is the name of a diabetologist who had devoted his life to this pathology. This event brings together about forty healthcare professionals eager to be trained by experts through a multidisciplinary approach. The last session took place in 2019 and comparable actions have been launched in other countries.
The URGO Foundation also rewards prevention and innovative management of diabetic foot ulcerations initiatives. It awards €100,000 in prizes, allocated between France, Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom and China.
As part of a partnership with DFoot International, which gathers healthcare professionals, the Foundation has also developed digital teaching modules to help training healthcare professionals in the diagnosis and management of this diabetes complication.
