The American Diabetes Association will honor a University of Arizona surgery professor for his work in amputation prevention.

David Armstrong, a podiatrist and director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance, will receive the Roger Pecoraro Award in June. The award is named for a pioneer in the field.

Armstrong has published many of the key works in the field of amputation prevention, according to the UA.

He also has mentored many of the other leaders in the field.

"To be named alongside so many of my friends and mentors not only is a thrill, but also a responsibility to continue to make a difference," Armstrong said in a press statement.
